Asian Beetles Invasion?

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 255 Posts

We have been invaded by numerous orange and black Asian lady beetles (not lady bugs, but the orange ones). They smell and bite. I can not use chemicals as we have family members with allergies and I do some part time weekend child care. I have been vacuuming them up numerous times a day.


Does anyone have any tried and true suggestions that work as to how to get rid of them?

I am rather OCD about keeping a spotlessly clean and smell free house and it is driving me bonkers.

Lady beetles can be a problem because they enter your home and hibernate in your walls during the winter months.

  • Diatomaceous Earth Power can be used around your home to prevent the beetles from entering your home. This can also prevent other ground level animals from entering your home.

  • Wild orange essential oil will help remove the lady beetles scent. The lady beetles don't like the smell of citrus or citronella scents. You can make a spray and use the spray around your home and when cleaning up after the beetles.
  • Cloves are another excellent way to get rid of these beetles. They don't like this scent either. You should make some small clove bags and place them around your home. Place the bags in the area that you find the beetles the most.
  • Bay leaves are also another scent that the beetles don't like. Make a few pouches of fresh bay leaves and place them in the areas around your home that you find the most beetles. You can also mix cloves with the bay leaves.

Lemon oil in a diffuser helps alot and clears them out. Ive also heard planting mums helps keep them out which I havent tried yet. Something about the smell of the mums they cant stand and also mums have some thing in it that is used for pest sprays and bug bombs. I never knew that about mums but its true. I have dogs and I know they make animals sick and worse get stuck in the roof of the mouth of dogs.


Eewww.... (Ive seen the pictures of this thats happened to a few dogs) Ive also heard the stuff that leaks out of their legs or whatever it releases after being smashed causes asthma. The government really did us wrong bringing these bugs here as if we didnt have enough bugs. Goodluck
