Garden Tip

Keywords: Ladybugs

The multicolored Asian lady beetles look for crevices to spend the winter hibernating and they seem particularly fond of light colored south walls. If you don't want to find these little beneficial insects flying around your house on the first sunny day in spring fill the cracks in your house siding with caulk. For a description, management ideas and detailed vacuum cleaner bagging instructions Ohio State University Extension has a fact sheet on these critters.
