Beetles in Minnesota

Asian Lady Beetles, Part I

Asian Lady Beetle populations in Minnesota have increased dramatically in the past decade.  These irritating beetles were first introduced in California in 1916 and again in the mid 1960s as part of a governmental program for the biological control of a type of aphid.  The beetles did not spread until the late 1980s, and now have encompassed most of the United States. 

Asian Lady Beetles feed on aphids occurring on trees and plants, making buildings close to several trees or plants with aphids more susceptible.  The Asian Lady Beetle will also feed on other lady beetle species in Minnesota, making them a serious nuisance.  These beetles can crawl into cracks in the buildings around attics, windows, doors and other such openings.  Since the beetles feed on aphids, they die soon upon entering buildings.
