The Asian Lady Beetle is much like the native species found through the United States. They are small, hemispherical in shape, and can be found with and without spots. Their colors may vary from red and orange to a dull cream. However, unlike the native species, this ladybug can be quite aggressive. Masses of ladybugs have been known to swarm and even bite when seeking shelter for the winter months. In this regard, they have been an unwelcome guest for homeowners that don't find them to be good luck at all, but rather a nuisance. -- ladybuglady.comAnd they don't seem to die easily. They survive being on the windshield driving down the highway. They survive a freeze. They survive heavy winds. They survive the rain. One survived a car wash. Another one even survived being heated in coffee in the microwave!
And now, for another unknown reason, they are beginning to die. So I'm finding dead ones all over the house.
Apologies that my photos aren't very good. They make it really hard to take photos. They are tiny and move fast.
