Florida has her Love Bugs but

In Oklahoma we have these stinking little Asian Beetles that find their way into our homes and RVs.

It's easy to understand how they get inside the RV with all the cracks and crevices but the house is another thing.

I think they can crawl through glass

We had them too here North Texas, not anymore. I used a couple old fashion spray bombs under and in the coach, now all gone including everything else too.

I guess a 1/4 stick of dynamite would work but I should try the spray bombs first.

I call them LADYBUGS. I buy about a thousand every spring and I spread them around my plants in the spring so they eat the mites.

Very easy to mistake these bugs for the nice Lady Bug but they aren't.
The (the stinkers) used to be called Japanese Beetles but PC came along so now they are Asian Beetles.
I wouldn't mind if there were Lady Bugs but these guys stink, stink more if agitated.

I sucked up a million of them this morning, if I had known you buy bugs I would have sent them to you
