Meet the Beetles

Chances are you've seen these lady-bug like insects on and around your home.
Orange in color, some with spots, and others not (the difference between female male), a stinging bite, and a fairly foul odor.
These bugs right now have only one thing on their mind...getting into your house.
They are, I'm told, preparing for the cold winter, and that means finding a warm place to basically hibernate. Most likley the hearty ones will find a place under a window or under siding and by spring they'll leave.
Tom Pollard of Best Control-Pest Control, says it's best to vaccum them up if they get into your house, otherwise don't use pesticides, since the dead beetles attract carpet beetles which will eat the dead Asian beetles, but then find a way into your home and carpet.
