Dealing with a Harlequin Ladybird problem
Originally from Asia, the harlequin ladybird first arrived in the UK in 2004, and has rapidly become one of the most common ladybirds in the country, particularly in towns and gardens. It is one of our larger species and is a voracious predator - it is able to out-compete our native species for aphid-prey and will also eat other ladybirds' eggs and larvae. It can have multiple broods throughout the spring, summer and autumn, which also gives it a competitive edge.
When this specis of ladybug is present in your garden there really are no control methods availiable as these would affect our own ladybirds.
However - when they swarm in your house the results can be very unpleasant and they can cause damage to doors and windows and genrally produce real problems.
