A few nights ago, I got brained by a ladybug while I was playing WoW.

Today, while Ted, Brian, and I were putting lights on the house, we saw that there are thousands of juvenile ladybugs all over my yard. They're crawling over the walls of my house.

Looks like the ladybugs in my neighborhood have been getting their freak on bigtime.

When I first noticed this image on my friends page, this song began playing in my thoughts.

I must need help.

We have millions of them in my house too. When I was in college, I lived near a hall window and my room there would get flooded with millions of ladybugs. It's always kind of cute, until they die.

Dead ladybugs are depressing. =P I used to buy tubs of them for my yard when I lived at my last place (aphids galore on my roses) and there were always casualties.

the annual ladybug invasion started here a couple weeks ago -- all of a sudden we'll see them on the wall or flying into the ceiling fan, consantly, for a week or so. at work, the overhead lights are full of dead ladybugs! O_O poor dears! it's the only infestation that i find adorable!

A horrible cockroach story I have just came to mind ("infestation") that involves a retaining wall next to a MacDonald's that I almost sat on.

Er.

At least you get ladybugs, which are both decorative and useful. I doubt that you'll have any problems with either aphids or scale insects. Our house, on the other hand, got invaded by box elder bugs, which are only minimally decorative and completely un-useful. Even the venus flytrap doesn't like them.

At first, I thought that you were referring to something that happened in-game! My first thought was "when the hell did Blizzard add ladybugs as a weapon?"

Send some ladybugs up to me! I want some! XD

I heard Barry White, btw, even before I saw your comment. LOL!

Are they red or orange? There's one type of lady bug that's become quite a pest, infesting people's attics and stuff. Plus they bite...

The Asian lady beetles? Annoying things...I've heard they bite because they're looking for salt.

Funny. I happen to be in Texas today (I'm usually in NYC) visiting my cousin, and found a ladybug clinging to his shirt. I put it outside.

Is it time for Enraged LadyBug Musk?! Actually, I guess they aren't enraged - just Horny Ladybug Musk! Unless it's "make up sex"...

That brought back memories of collecting ladybugs in a Skippy peanut butter jar when I was a kid. I don't think I've ever seen a ladybug here in Colorado. Hey, speaking of Colorado, are you guys heading out this way for an Avs game any time soon?

I don't think I've ever seen a ladybug here in Colorado.

There was one in our house (East Denver) a couple of days ago, but I don't know what happened to it.

After housesitting for one of my regular clients during a ladybug invasion, those things creep me out big time. I couldn't take a shower without them crawling all over the shower walls. Ick.

Anything in a swarm is unpleasant. =P~

Ohhh, my grandmother used to tell me that if your house was covered in Lady Bugs, you had a very fertile woman living there;>

Is it just your house, or the rest of your neighborhood as well?

Maybe they are coming for you. Maybe the braining was a warning shot.

(Maybe I need to not allow myself to get on LJ until I've been awake for more than 10 minutes.)

I haven't checked my neighbor's houses, so in the spirit of paranoia, let's say its just my house.

And I do think the braining was a warning shot...

Did you know ladybugs can BITE? I never knew that until one time years ago one was crawling on my wrist and I guess it got pissed off, and it BIT ME. It took a little chunk out. o_O

This post reminded me of when I went up Mt Etna this summer. The place was absolutely crawling with ladybugs (or as us Brits call them, ladybirds, even though they ain't birds) and every lava rock was covered in little red dots where the bugs clustered, apparently to die. The last place you'd expect to see swarms of the little bugs is on the bleak, icy, lifeless summit of an active volcano, but there you go...
I don't mind having them crawl on me, until they start pooing that stinky yellow stuff. I haven't been bitten yet, thankfully.
