SUCK IT UP – The best way to rid your cabin of Asian lady beetles is to vacuum them up.
Pests, like death and taxes, are one of life’s certainties. Some pests come inside the cabin looking for a place to live, others are in search of food (not that they necessarily find any), and yet others just blunder in. Like the changes you see in the natural world around your cabin, pests follow the seasons. If you follow some simple, seasonal, pest-focused home maintenance, you can keep pests out of your cabin, cottage, camp or lakehome year-round.
