Those Are Not Ladybugs You Are Seeing in Your Maine House
According to WGME Channel 13, you may think you are seeing ladybugs taking up residence in your home, but they are not.
Because of the increased drought situation, the news station reported, we are seeing an increase in little red insects called Lady Asian Beetles.
Maine.gov has a whole web page about them, even that they can become real pests when a bunch of them invade the home.
Charles Armstrong, who is an insect diagnostician at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, told WGME that the Lady Asian Beetles are family members to the lady bug, they are not the same insect.
Any time I see a ladybug, I count the spots on its back to determine its age, and then I make a wish if they are really old.
So if you are seeing these red little ones you can still make a wish on them, but not sure if they'll come true though.
