lady bugs?
 
I live in wisconsin and i am redoing my finished attic. In the warmer monthsi have tons of lady bugs that come from the attic and some find there way into the living space. Since i have the attic down to the studs now is there something i can use to "bomb" the attic. Or any suggestions on how to get rid of these lady bugs. Thanks for any help on this.

You may have to find out why they are attracted to your attic. Before you contact a pest control company, do a search for Lady Bugs and Hatcheries. You want to know their habits and preferred nesting areas.

The only effective bomb that I know of on the market is Raid Fumigators, but that will not prevent them from coming back
Use Demon WP or Tempo WP for long term treatments
Treat all cracks and crevices, this is where they over winter
Also treat the outside shrubs and sidewalk cracks

Treating the rafter with Timbor or similar product will be of benefit for long term pest control in general


Are the ones you have a mustard color?
