I live on the south side of the building, so it's warm.
It's warm, so ladybugs are swarming...
And apparently my windows aren't fully sealed, which is apparent as today I decided that I had had it, opened my ghetto saran-wrap shield, and vacuumed out some 200+ ladybugs. by the time i came back from dumping out the canister, I had 4 flying around my light and 10 in the window bay. Fuckers.
And I think I just saw hot ladybug sex. ow. my brain.
At any rate.
1. Is there a way to keep them out? a houseplant that would repell them, something to smear on the windows that would kill them, a summoning spell for a demonic ladybug devouring cat?
2. My understanding is that they aren't actually ladybugs, but "asian beetles" or something. as far as i know, the only difference between the two is that the asian beetles smell worse, bite, and still prefer aphids but can eat anything...
So, am I the only one who thinks this is not exactly a different species, but just a very frustrating evolution?
