Asian lady beetles (Harmonia axyridis) are frequent invaders during the fall or winter and are easily identified by the spotted pattern and the large, black ‘W’ on the thorax behind the head. They often appear in shades of yellow, orange and red and have varying numbers of spots except for the male of the species, which are often without any spots.
Asian lady beetles are generally a problem for homeowners once the weather starts to cool and they start seeking shelter in large numbers, for overwintering. Sites that attract this species include: houses, barns and other outbuildings that provide suitable protection.
Asian lady beetles are considered nuisance pests when they invade in large numbers and while they don’t reproduce over the winter, they may become active on warmer, sunny winter days. These insects are a threat, however, to fruit crops because of their habit of feeding on ripe fruit.
Asian lady beetles can be hard to eradicate. That's why our service includes the necessary products and follow up visits for one fee. Our treatment methods consist of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the interior and exterior of your home, then a targeted treatment of all areas where activity is present. Each Initial Service includes the application of seven exclusive Pest Guard steps, designed to rid your home of unwanted pests and keep them away.
Follow Up - Quarterly interior/exterior or exterior-only services will be scheduled as part of our annual Integrated Pest Management program. All Schendel Premium Care customers enjoy the benefit of our PestZero Guarantee. If pests return in between visits, Schendel returns for free.
Asian lady beetles are not a pest many people have success eradicating on their own. Beware when purchasing pesticides and other products online, as many are not effective. Pesticides can be harmful to people and pets if they are misused or mixed improperly.
At Schendel we are 100% committed to helping you ASAP. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day.
Schendel uses the least amount of material as possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment as much as possible. When conventional materials are required, we follow very stringent guidelines for the use of the product so that it poses no threat to people, pets or plants. All products are found to be effective and registered by the EPA and our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.
We have standard pricing for all of our pest services, based on average size homes under 3500 square feet and where the infestation does not require more than the standard number of services. We will always make you aware of any price changes before we start your service. Sign up for your FREE quote today and see how much you can save with Schendel.
