Dwayne, today I shared your experience with Lady Beetles. The South facing back of the house hosted many Lady Beetles as did the sheets, etc drying on the line [had to be well shaken before bringing the bedding in]. I noted a good number of the of the various "spotted" group.

I haven't heard them mentioned yet this fall and I keep forgetting but...we've had Woolly Alder Aphids flying around for around 3 weeks, whenever it's warm and dry.

Hundreds of Lady Beetles yesterday, both indoors and out.

Ah, my copy of Kaufman has arrived. I'm ready to take on any insect. Perhaps I'll try to find one of everything, in order of appearance. I'm on my way to the basement to look for cellar spiders.

Thanks Denis. A month has passed and she (?) is still basking at the top of the plant, and fresh eggs have appeared. I think I'll suggest she pay rent or move along.

HI Ken,

It is in the same group as the Potato Beetle, but it is the Swamp Milkweed Beetle (Labidomera clivicollis)

Comment by Ken MacIntosh on July 31, 2012 at 7:09

This beetle took up residence on my garden "butterfly weed" on July 1. The plant was subsequently foraged by what I would normally call potato beetle larvae. But I wonder, could this be another species of Leptinotarsa?Beetle.jpg
