Fending Off Lady Beetles

Lady bugs

We’re heading into winter, which means that you may soon find Asian lady beetles (commonly known as lady bugs) on your windows and light fixtures. Although they can be a nuisance, and can stink and stain surfaces if they’re crushed, they don’t do any harm. They’re just looking for a protected space to hibernate.
