Lady Bugs

Yesterday was warm outside and the sun was shining. It felt so good! Then the lady bugs came... Some people told me it meant "good luck" to have lady bugs. I have to disagree. I was swarmed with thousands of lady bugs on the sunny side of my home. So whenever I opened the back door to let the dogs out, lady bugs would come in! I spent hours with a can of industrial bug spray trying to get all the lady bugs. I should have known better! As soon as I sprayed the first squirt, lady bugs were all over me trying to escape the fumes! EEK! In my hair, my clothes, and even down the front of my shirt!!! Sorry folks, but I didn't feel very lucky!!

4 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. We had a major lady bug issue this spring. I've seen many this fall but not as bad as they were a few months ago. So annoying and when you squish them they release that nasty dirt smell. Ick!

  2. Funny you talk about lady bugs today. I found one on my kitchen table last night.

    The weather here has been wet and cool so they must all be visiting you.

  3. It's been in the 70s this week. Very unusual for this time of year. So the Lady Bugs decided to follow the nice warm weather pattern! The nerve of them! haha

  4. So funny... a friend was just telling me-today- that they had an infestation of lady bugs this week. I thought that usually happened in the spring, guess not!
