RE: Look what I found!
In the part of the US where I live (and maybe they do this everywhere, I'm not sure) every spring they release millions of ladybugs into the air...something about them pollinating or something. Ok, well clearly I don't know the details, just that it's done here. If you had hundreds of them in your house every year that you had to vacuum a few times a day, this would no longer be cute to you! LOL, but since it's one little, lonely, cute ladybug~AWW~

They don't pollinate (well maybe they do but I'm pretty sure they don't), but they eat aphids and other pests that destroy plants like roses bushes.

We always get them in the fall, our bug guy told us it's because they live in the fields, and when the farmers do their harvest, they all disperse and go into town lol

Ugh, glad I don't get them in the spring AND fall...there's always a few floatin around, but during the spring the house is covered in them for a few weeks. It goes from cute to disgusting pretty quick. I remember being little and rarely seeing one and getting so excited when I did. My kids may never know that simple joy Sad

In the spring for us it's box elder bugs. They COVER the the south side of our house, unfortunately that's where we go in and out of the house. You gotta have some ninja skills to get past those, I'm telling ya!

RE: Look what I found!
They are released as a control against many crop killing insects like aphids, thrips, mites, etc. They are certainly a better alternative to pesticides, but also certainly not the ideal solution.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
