Good Lady Bug or Bad Lady Bug?

OK, I found this critter on one of my peppers today. We have a huge problem with Asian Beetles around here. Especially in the fall. I can never tell the difference. Is this a "Lady Bug" or an "Asian Beetle"?

RE: Good Lady Bug or Bad Lady Bug?

Looks like a lady bug, but both are actually good for eating pests like aphids. I feel your pain with the asian beetles congregating around the house come fall. Right now, they are on the soy beans, but once the farmers hack the soy beans down, all of those asian beetles get scattered and come looking for food and shelter.
