LADYBIRD CONTROL HERTFORDSHIRE

Ladybird Control Hertfordshire – We provide ladybird control throughout Hertfordshire to rid you of ladybird infestations. Most people probably never think of Ladybirds when considering what is a pest and certainly don’t expect them to be a problem, however recently they are becoming more and more of a nuisance. With the cold weather this winter a number of pests are likely to seek shelter in the warmth of peoples homes and if you have found yourself with lots of ladybirds in your home, it’s likely you have a Harlequin Ladybird infestation.

Treatment usually involves a combination of insecticidal spray or powder to likely entry points and infected areas. If preferred a non-toxic silicon based dust can be applied to these areas as well sealing any gaps where ever possible. Please call or email to discuss treatment options.

LADYBIRD FACTS

  • COMMON SPECIES

    The Harlequin Ladybird was introduced to mainland Europe and north america in 1988 as a way to control aphids biologically. They arrived in Britain in the summer of 2004 and their population has spread rapidly since. They are the most invasive of the ladybird species and due to their large appetites there has been concern about what effect it will have on native ladybird species.

  • DIET

    Harlequin ladybirds mainly eat aphids, however they are also known to eat a range of other insects, such as scale insects, the eggs and larvae of moths and butterflies.

  • HABITAT

    These ladybirds can be found living in both urban and agricultural areas as well as woodland, wetland and meadows. They are found in trees and plants which support large populations of aphid. In the winter months, some times these ladybirds can enter the home and form swarms that linger in an area for a long time.

  • BEHAVIOUR

    Harlequin Ladybirds make use of pheromones to attract each other, this allows for the large gatherings which are often seen in the autumn. They often congregate in sunlit areas because of the heat available, so even on cold winter days, some of the hibernating Ladybirds will wake up because of solar heating.

  • ACTIVITY

    The Harlequin ladybird is considered to be on of the worlds most invasive insects, this is in part due to their tendency to hibernate indoors and due to the unpleasant smell and stain left behind when they are frightened or squashed.
