How to Naturally Get Rid of Ladybugs in Your Home
If your house is like mine right now, it's crawling with ladybugs (pun intended). In fact, as I'm sitting here writing this right now, I can see three of them on the light above me. They're harmless, but boy are they ever annoying. Since I decided to go to the Google to solve this problem, I figured I should share it with you too.
If they've already made their way inside, there are few things you can do to get rid of them. Vacuum those suckers up. For the stragglers, set up an all-natural trap - a bowl of water and dish soap. WikiHow recommends putting the bowl in a lighted area since they are drawn to the light. And lastly, create your own spray. Put water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray areas you see the little buggers, generously. The spray is supposed to kill the ladybug pheromone smell that attracts them to one another.
There are also a few tips to prevent them from coming into your home in the first place. Apparently, ladybugs are not a fan of citrus smells, so they will avoid your home if it smells like lemon, oranges, or limes. Put the candles near the entrances of your house. Another tip they recommend, weatherstripping. Put the peel-and-stick strips on the doors and windows, and that should help keep the pests out.
Not going to lie, I'm going to go full exterminator mode when I get home. Fingers crossed, some of these tips work. Know of a better way to get rid of ladybugs? Please share. Click chat via our app to let us know your secret.
