We have them everywhere here,too, and my neighbor said they are coming in his house too. They are swarming my front door, you can't even walk out the door without at least 20 landing on you as soon as you walk out. My kids said when you look out our front door it looks like it's raining ladybugs, lol. I remember my grandmother having them in her bathroom window when I was little, but I don't remember them being this bad before either. If they are not ladybugs then what are they? They sure look like ladybugs to me. I don't really mind them that much, but it is strange to see so many everywhere.

Cucumber beetles look like lady bugs. It might be them you are seeing.

I had them last year too at this same time. It's because winter is coming. The whole back of my house is covered and they are coming in my back door. It's just could be worse....could be wasps or roaches or something like that. lol

suck them up with a vacuum. We only have them in our south facing rooms. Don't smack them with a fly swatter, because they'll leave a stink.

We have them also. If you have a bean field close to your house your going to get them when they cut the fields. That is where they are coming from.

Up north it was boxelder bugs, which look like a lighting bug with a red stripe.

Maybe the Ladybugs are meeting to have a LadyBug Picnic. Anyone remember this classic Sesame Street song?..LadyBugs 12 at the LadyBug Picnic!

They are beetles and they either sting or bite! Don't know which, but you will feel it.

I gotta chime in and say "ME TOO!!" lol They were in my bedroom and living room today, so i went outside and the whole front and side of my house was covered! I've never seen so many ladybugs before and i've lived in my house for 4 years. Hope they go away soon because ladybugs or not i dont like any kind of bugs in my home.:(

We have them too. They are everywhere. We also used the shop vac to get them out. They came in last year but not as bad. My grandmother used to say that it was a sign of a bad winter coming when they swarm that bad. I don't know if that's true.

I really dont remember having a bad winter last year. I didnt think it got bad enough to freeze all the bugs out. I dont think we had much snow.

My electric was never out. It did hit some places very hard but Dyersburg was spared of the real bad stuff.
