How to Get Rid of Ladybugs in Your House

1. Broom Them Out:-

In order to get rid of the ladybugs, the first approach that can be used is hand picking, but some even say that it should not be used and thus I will rather advise you not to pick them up with hand and instead you can choose to crush them under your broom and drag them outwards from your house so as to get them away from your premises.

2. Spray Insecticides:-

The insecticides are the chemicals used to kill pests, but I personally found that these chemicals can prove to be poisonous for the ladybugs as well and every time there is an excess of ladybugs, we just spray up the insecticide chemicals and most of the ladybugs die this way. You may also choose to go for the pesticide chemicals to be sprinkled in your surroundings if the number has crossed the limit.

3. Keep Camphor Balls in Your Surroundings:-

The property of camphor is that it sublimes or talking in normal language, it gets converted directly from solid state to the gaseous state without even changing to the liquid state. The smell of this camphor is not liked by these ladybugs and thus you may choose to bring some camphor balls from the market so as to keep them in your surroundings and get rid of the problem of ladybugs in a better way.

4. Boric Acid to Kill Ladybugs:-

The boric acid which is generally used as a pesticide can also prove to be poisonous for the ladybugs as well. Simply sprinkle up boric acid on these ladybugs and you will find them meet their death this way. Boric acid can be filled up in injections or you may even take the help of some dropper so as to drop it in the infested areas.
