Does anyone know how to get rid of ladybirds? This morning there were 37 in the living room and a further 15 in the kitchen. Does anyone know how to get rid of them or stop them coming in? Thank you for any help

Haddonbp has the right idea. Let them know you appreciate them by letting them munch away those pesky aphids outside.

Pick them up and put them outside as they are the gardeners friend and will eat the Aphids for you is the warmer weather.I have seen 2 on our rockery and was so pleased as we have roses and they soon get greenfly so I welcome them.If you have plants in the kitchen remove them and place them outside for a while and they may fly on to the plants don't kill them as they are really useful to have in the garden.
You could sing the nursery rhyme to them and they might fly home!!!!ha ha!

I will happily re-home the lot for you :)
I am assuming that you are not a gardener? They are great at eating aphids.
I would gather them up gently in a container and pop them into a shed or greenhouse. If you have a freind who is a gardener, I am sure they would be only to happy to come and get them, I know I would love to have them :)
Please let me know what happens to them :)
take care x

Are they lady birds or the harlequin ones? We got them at work and they are pretty much impossible to remove. The harlequin ones eat the normal ones. So maybe you need find something that eats them! If I find out i'll let you know instead of rambling on lol

Oh my goodness - I have never heard of this before. I suppose you need to figure out how they are getting in. Not too sure how to get rid of them or deter them from coming back. Good luck! Gx

Open the window. They've been hibernating in your house over the winter and I am SSOOOOO JEALOUS! I used to get them in my house, and I knew spring had sprung when they started, literally, coming out of the woodwork. They aren't coming in, they want out, so let them out or put them out and let them get on with their wonderful, aphid eating lives. I think you really are lucky, just set them free. For God's sake don't kill them, they are becoming endangered due to invasive species.
