So...... Hello there I know this is an odd topic but it is quiet fascinating none the least.

Lately I been having lady bugs, caterpillars, butterflies and a few other interesting guests coming into my house whenever the door is left open.

I am not the casual spray it with poison or squish it type of guy, instead I pick them up by sliding a peace of paper under them or in the path that they crawl. Then I just carry them outside and most of the time they do not fly off or crawl off as if they trust me.

So...... here is the insane thing

Every time you let them out by act with kindness and not living by the boot, you seem to eventually be crawling up to your neck with them


In the end you end up with releasing 2 or 3 per day instead of the occasional 1 per week, I mean - Is there some sort of place where they all hang out and tell stories of their adventures


Like saying "Oh you guys will never believe what happened !!! There is the most odd human in that giant place and he always lets our kind out"


So.... what are your thoughts on this ??

Ref


Ladybugs release pheromones, it is sort of like "perfume" to attract other ladybugs. They use pheromones as a means of communication during mating and hibernation. Insect pheromones are very powerful. They can be detected by others up to a 1/4 mile away. This helps ladybugs find each other and it lets future generations know of a good place to "camp out" for the winter. The pheromones don't go away easily. The chemical "scent" can remain year after year, and not only on the outside of a structure, but also within the walls, where ladybugs tend to hide before emerging into your home. So, scrubbing pheromones off a house is a BIG task, if not impossible. The yellow stuff you might see from time to time is their blood (hemolymph). It, too, contains pheromones and it stains. You can see the yellow blood when you hold a ladybug and it gets scared. This is a normal reaction to stressful situations called reflex bleeding. Releasing some of its blood is one way the ladybug can protect itself. The blood smells bad and signals to a predator that this ladybug is not a good lunch choice.


But I like your theory much more.

Could very well be


I called pest control to do a check up but no spraying they said there are no nests around nothing and we clean the house every week like a big spring clean.Which makes it more confusing if you ask me


But... still this is very interesting/fascinating topic

Thanks and on the topic of lady bugs I get all kinds of them.

Some are yellow with black dots, some are black with white dots, some are blueish/green with black dots, the basic red and black dots one and on one occasion I swear there was a golden one.


My house seems to be like a museum for them of some sorts they tour around and then I find them guide them back outside

You called pest control for 2 or 3 per day


good god your a wimp, I get whole squadrons of them in the summer, I just live with them, unless they're the stingy type, in which case they are quickly escorted out.

Sir or Madam I let you know I am not a wimp


It was called only 1 time to do a check up around the house due to my folks freaking out.

I hope you never get the bed bugs, those things are malicious as hell my buddy picked some up in a hotel a couple years ago. I helped him do some extermination, what a nightmare.
