Ladybugs aren’t necessarily harmful, but some can become a nuisance. The main species that can become a problem in Albany is the Asian lady beetle, Harmonia axyridis, which is an invasive species in the U.S. They can become a nuisance in your home by overpopulating the area and crawling all over the house, the yard, and other areas.
While they don’t sting and aren’t venomous, some ladybugs can bite if they feel threatened, but their bites usually don’t hurt. Still, too much of a good thing (especially with a ladybug infestation), isn’t good after all.
Most ladybug species in Albany will release a foul-smelling chemical fluid if you pick them up. This fluid is meant to deter predators from eating them, so it won’t harm you as long as you wash your hands and clean up afterward.
Most ladybugs are beneficial to your Albany garden by eating plant-sucking insects like aphids and scale.
No, ladybugs don’t make nests.
There are about 5000 species worldwide, but only around 500 in the USA. In any event, too much of a good thing (especially with a ladybug infestation), isn’t good after all.
No. It’s a common myth that the number of spots tells the age of a ladybug. Different types of ladybugs have varying numbers of spots. Some spots are black, others are white.
Ladybugs in Albany will devour plant pests like scales and aphids, which will latch onto a plant and suck its juices out using their beak-shaped mouth, called a “stylet.” Still, too much of a good thing (especially with a ladybug infestation), isn’t good after all.
In general, yes, ladybugs go after most aphids. However, they don’t like to eat all aphids, as some aphid “flavors” aren’t as savory to them as others.

Fox is always concerned about customer satisfaction with every service visit. I especially appreciate that they collected food for those in need during the pandemic. I definitely felt good donating bags of food at my last service visit. Thank you for what you are doing to help the community.

The overall experience was perfect! Bracken presented the company well, explained in clear detail, negotiated politely and was a true professional in every way. Only hours later Sara delivered on everything Bracken had stated they would provide and did it with professionalism, care and above all presented herself, the company and Bracken to perfection. Great team, great experience and cost effective too!
