    Lady bugs

    What's everyone doing to keep these annoying things out. I can only vacuum so many.

    Never met a Lady Bug I didn't like. You actually having them show up in your trailer uninvited while your trailer is not in use? I've never had a problem with them in or near my trailer. Now ants, that's another issue.

    Yeah have them in there starting to winterize. I have wooded land about 15 yards from my house and my trailer is in on its slab about 10' from the woods

    Had a major lady bug invasion on a recent camping trip ..... They were swarming and trying to find places to hide for the winter ......still vacuuming them out of the camper and truck cab. If you figure out another way to get rid of them let me know!!

    Just a edumacated guess that they are Asian beetle. You can thank the government for that gift! CJ

    Put Hedge apples in the trailer. Lady bugs don't like them.
