I had a few lady bugs between the screen and window last weekend. Haven't seen any in the house yet. I'll take a lady bug over a house centipede anyday, those things are nasty! We have had quite a few spiders in the house lately, luckily small enough for me to smash. I did have a nasty run in with yellow jackets this summer, one flew up the back of my shirt and got me right in the back! I'll take a bee sting over that, man did that hurt. I have seen a couple of bugs lately that I wished I never saw fly, as long as they don't land on me, I just don't do well with bugs.

We had the same problem--ladybugs all over the back of the house, near the windows, etc. and I did some web research on what product to use. We got some "Bug Stop" by Spectricide at WalMart - clear, comes in a big spray container -only cost about $6.99. An hour later, the bugs were all dying. Just to be safe, we had Killingsworth come and spray the next weekend. Our technician said the pesticide they use is effective against the ladybugs. Haven't seen any since!
