The ladybugs are back.  Every year we get an influx of these little beetles in a variety of colors, some with spots, some without, some the size of the tip of my pinky finger (well maybe that’s exaggerating), and some barely bigger than a peppercorn.  Whatever size or color they are they wheedle their way through every crack they can find in my house.  They crawl on the ceilings and the walls and sometimes on us.  It’s not really a big deal, they seem harmless and isn’t it good luck to have a Ladybug land on you?  But still, who wants bugs in their house?  So every year we sweep and swoosh these little guys back on their merry way but not before we make a few wishes for them to carry on their wings.

  1. I saw one yesterday when I was taking the clothes off the clothesline. I think we will be seeing more ladybugs at Halloween, too!

  2. My parent’s home – built in 1878 – is a huge old house with 12-foot ceilings. It’s in a rural area and I believe you must live in a rural area, too. At any rate, ladybugs come to visit all winter at their house! I read in a magazine that, for whatever reason, it’s the old houses in rural areas that seem to attract the ladybugs. With the 12-foot ceiilings, the family has just learned to co-exit with the visitors. There’s no getting them down short of having them exterminated and we don’t want to do that! Do yours last all winter?

    • We’re in a rural area but our home doesn’t have high ceilings. This means that the ladybugs probably get fed up with us and they usually disappear around January. Once in a while we’ll see one flying around in the spring.
