Not to be a Smart Alick, but they're NOT Lady bugs, but a Japanese beetle brought in to eat soybean aphids. In my mind they are just like a lot of other import answers to problems. The problem is that there is never a predator to keep them under control. Remember Cudsu (SP) Just ask any southerner how much they like that stuff.
