Working directly and in-directly on a couple of government sites- out of date information is the norm.

Were back home. Trailer is winterized and I thought we had taken care of most of the lady bugs that got in. When we got back to the storage lot and opened the trailer to empty the fridge, SURPRISE, lady bugs everywhere. Tomorrow Ill go out with a couple of bug foggers to kill all of them.

Oh so true. I use to like the commercial if it's on the internet it's got to be true. Later RJD

I'll bet you're absolutely right. Last time we had this happen was in 2010 and even after bug fogging we were still finding ladybugs in the trailer the following year, all year long.

Oakman- be careful of bug foggers!! I suggest just vacuum every few
hours until you get the most of them.
Foggers used to have butane as the propellant. Donno what they use now.
This can create an explosion hazard in a small area like an RV.

Vacuum or dust buster is the safest way.

The European Lady Beetle is attracted to white objects especially in the
late afternoon sun. Something about how they normally nest in Europe.
A white trailer or an old white clapboard farm house with lots of cracks can
be inundated with them this time of year.
We had a bad experience in Obannon Woods state park IN a couple years
ago just about this time of year. We ran our dust buster down and had
to resort to a cup of water and trying to catch them when they dropped
off the ceiling after we nudged them with a finger.
Plus that trip we had an invasion of ground bees!! We were glad to go home that trip!

Thanks for the heads up KyDan. I'm not too worried about an explosion since our trailer will be on the storage lot with the battery disconnected and no shore power. Nothing to spark an explosion.
Vacuuming will get the obvious ladybugs but not the one that are still well hidden.

Don't worry, the ones from the Nigerian bankers and attorneys telling you about all of the dead oil executives with no heirs and wanting to split millions of dollars with you are absolutely true.

After all, if you can't trust a complete stranger wanting to steal millions of dollars and smuggle it out of the country to you, then whom can you trust?
