Invasion

Ladybugs have landed on our house. A bajillion of them. They started coming here about a month ago and quite a few have moved in. I read that they are attracted to light colored houses and they're just here for the winter so just leave them alone. That's fine with me! I can use all the ladybug luck I can get! Here are some having a meeting in a corner of the kitchen:click to enlarge. I never knew their little spots were so symmetrical and each one has a different pattern. They were dive bombing my husband and BIL while they were building the fence and my BIL told me they were biting him! Big baby! They don't even have teeth! ;)

Wow--you're so patient with them. I absolutely hate all their dead bodies littering the floor as they starting passing on during the winter. Grr :)

They're pretty but they DO bite!

My family lives in southern Indiana, and they have a total INFLUX of ladybugs every summer! It's crazy! They're so pretty, though. They got to the point where they were vacuuming them off the walls!

They actually start to smell as they die in large numbers.
