Lady Bugs Swarming in the South

"The ladybug population in central Tennessee has ballooned this year, an entomologist says"..........

Is this a bad thing? I hope they make it down here. Maybe it is one of those be careful what you wish for situations.

My parents live in the Nashville area and are inundated with them right now. They can literally scoop them up in clumps from their doorway. They are coming down for a visit in a couple of weeks and said if they are still around, they'll bring me a jar of them. ! :)

We used to have them when we lived in the North. They are horrible and come in swarms by the thousands. They aren't the regular ladybug but an Asian Beetle. I sure hope they never make it this far south.

Well, I guess you can have too much of a good thing. I remember when I was younger the lady bugs were very red with evenly spaced black spots. For a while I saw a lot of orange ones. Lately, they've been getting more red, but not the same as the ones I remember.

They are welcome to come eat my whiteflies. This is the worst I've seen for about 25 years.
