The Asian ladybug measures between 4 mm and 6 mm long and has a convex dorsal shape. The Asian ladybug has a wide variety of colours, but the most common are orange or red-orange marked with 19 black dots.
The Asian ladybug feeds on aphids, mealybugs, booklice, psyllids and spider mites.
The Asian ladybug lives in gardens, fields, crops, maple, pines and firs. It cannot survive winter, which is why it looks for a warm place, in this case, our homes.
In the spring, the Asian ladybugs go outside and mate. The female lays between 5 and 60 eggs, which she attaches under the leaves near a food source, such as aphids.
