These ARE actually the ones I get every winter -- they come in, congragate in corners, and slowly die off, though I guess some go out in the spring.  


Mine couldn't die off quickly enough.  LOL.  And there're always more.  Smiley Sad

Oh yes. I think they come in to reproduce, so we'll always get more.  I read somewhere that once they get into a home, they always come back.

In the meantime, in the Sweetpea household, we just hatched a mantis ootheca and have a jar of fruit flies to feed the two surviving nymphs, lol.

While Gabe hopes to eradicate his home of pests, we invite them in, lol!

Ask Gabe to supply you with ladybirds -- he's a dealer.  LOL

That's cool.  You've got to post some pics!

Re: It's so quiet...

Lol, when they are big enough to eat ladybirds, I'll have Gabe send me some of his stock😂😂😂

Gabe, I promise to post pics if they get large enough, lol. Every single one died within hours of hatching, except two.

They are cool, though. We usually have hundreds of nymphs in our field.
