Ladybug Control Service in Knoxville

Locally Owned and Operated Pest Control

Ladybugs may be the cutest of all the bugs, but they can still be considered an unwanted pest, especially if they infest your home by the thousands! Ladybugs prey on aphids, mealy bugs, mites, and other soft-bodied insects, making them beneficial in many instances. However, ladybugs tend to travel together in large numbers which can be unnerving when they enter your residence. Especially in the autumn, precautions should be taken to prevent ladybugs from making your building their winter home.

As a locally-owned business, we understand the pest concerns you may have. We use Integrated Pest Management techniques and product applications during your service. Our Knoxville pest control uses some of the safest treatments in the industry. The modern, environmentally conscious products that we use are safe for children and pets.

When you have a ladybug infestation, choose the proven pest control specialists at Preferred Pest, Termite and Turf Management. Reach out to (865) 234-4008 as soon as you can.

How to Handle a Ladybug Infestation

You will know that you have a ladybug infestation when you notice large numbers around buildings. They choose to live under leaves, rocks and landscaping timbers. During the winter, you can find them in the dark, void areas behind walls, in attics and crawlspaces.

Take the following steps when you notice ladybugs:

  • Contact Preferred Pest Termite & Turf for a free inspection
  • Use a HEPA filter vacuum to get rid of the ladybugs and dispose of the bag
  • Sweep the ladybugs into a dustpan and place them outdoors
  • Install insect light traps in dark spaces, such as attics and basements

While you may think that they are cute, ladybugs can bite, emit an odor, and can stain some surfaces with a yellow secretion. Some people have asthmatic and allergic reactions to their shed skins.

If you are struggling with ladybugs, our Knoxville pest control services are ready to help. Contact us online or by calling (865) 234-4008 and schedule a free inspection.
