Although it looks similar to the native ladybeetle, the variegated Asian ladybeetle is an invasive species that has become common throughout North America, and it often seeks shelter in homes in large numbers. Photo by Jong-Seok Park/Louisiana State Arthropod Museum

Asian ladybeetle shows up in La.

By: Bruce Schultz,
BATON ROUGE – An invasive insect species could be making itself at home in your house, and an LSU AgCenter entomologist says the unwelcome guest is the variegated Asian ladybeetle.
“It is not a native species,” LSU AgCenter entomologist Chris Carlton said. “In Louisiana, we have at least 75 species of ladybugs, and most are native.”
This particular ladybug came to Louisiana in 1988, possibly from a shipping container. “No one really knows how it got here,” he said.
