Is ladybug a pest?

Well, to me, she does act like that. Not sure is the real one or the fake one (between orange and red colour) but, she's making sounds like some stinking bugs and enters into my room very easily. Not considering this as a good luck... What do you think?

We always thought they brought good luck. But maybe I'm wrong.

@moonandstars Most insects seem to have very few manners.

The red ones are last bugs the orange might be Japanese beetle which do enter homes and build nests and now humans. They do drown in soapy water though.

Ladybirds (or ladybugs, as you call them) are certainly not a pest. They are very much a friend of the gardener, since their larvae (the soft black and red things which have no wings) feed on greenfly and blackfly which are pests. The adult ladybird/bug itself is not harmful and feeds very little, if at all. They only serve to reproduce their species - and look pretty to our eyes.

@moonandstars Just carefully remove them with a sheet of paper and put them outside. They like to find a warmish place for the winter and that is probably why you find them indoors.

I find them cute though Britain had a plague of them in 1976 - there were millions of them

Ladybugs are very colorful looking bugs but I find them annoying. They always seem to land on you. Especially when I'm on the beach Fun facts: farmers love them because they eat aphids and other plant-eating pests. One ladybug can eat up to 5,000 insects in its lifetime!

that's surprising cause, my mom's potato is suffering from bugs and i wonder why they can't help they are insects too. i don't see them on beach (sorry for that), yet, but, since i came to my parents'place, i'm like a magnet for them

@moonandstars I found that an interesting fact about lady bugs. Guess they don't like your insects Anyway, when the wind is blowing a certain way they come to the beach. Good thing is they are not harmful to humans and don't eat food like flies. Just annoying!

@moonandstars We have had a problem with them here for years, they start coming to the house in huge quantities sometime in August and they stay there once all winter.

The red ones aren't bothersome and are good for plants I think. The orange ones are a part and can bite and wreck havoc on our plants.

There are many species of these ladybugs. The birds enjoy them for food here and they will also eat insects.
