ok so it is actually in my house not garden (but that is where i put them!)
my new 'irecord ladybirds' app tells me they are the new harlequin ones, so maybe that is why they are everywhere. we find a couple every day.
anyone else? bit early isnt it?

They never seem to go away here.

Fed up with them shitting on the washing angry

We have masses in our house. I've noticed at least 20, probably nearer 30, over the weekend. I opened the window in our bedroom for the first time in a about a month (!) yesterday, and there were loads lined up on the seal between the sill and the frame.

But they are all over the house. I seem to see more of them in the south facing sunnier half of the house.

They've been here all winter, living in a window frame, buzzing around me at night. I threw out about thirty a couple of weeks ago.

If it's the red with black spots ladybirds then they are an asset - if you can get them to leave the house and go in the garden! They eat greenfly (aphids) ferociously. Have you got houseplants with greenfly?

If it's the orange ones then I think they're utterly unhelpful!

Typically, ours are all orange!
