not to hijack the other thread.... who all has had a hatch of lady bugs? I mean there were none yesterday. This morning I hunted in one area and then drove down to another to help a buddy track a deer (we lost him, it was a bad shot). So I get back to the truck early afternoon and they are hovering all over the air and crawling on my windshield. I thought there must have been a hatch right there, until I got home (an hour drive away), and the front porch was covered in them. I know we usually get a good amount of lady bugs in the fall but I haven't seen this many all happen at once before. Has all of middle TN had them hatch on the same day or what? they are more precisely timed than cicadas... who else is seeing them?

I've seen two posts in my FB feed about copious lady bugs. Must be a TN thing.

My house is completely covered. Got home from work and found out I'd been invaded.

Nope. My place has been absolutely covered with them over the last two days here in Indiana.

Someone posted a news link about kudzu bugs swarming. I wonder if that's what they are. They look a lot like ladybugs.

I think the culprits are Asian Lady beetles. They tend to be more yellow/orangish in color. Also stink a bit more than the red ladybug. The kudzu bugs are swarming some here, but they are more brown with a somewhat squared body.
