I stepped outside on the front porch last night just before the rain. And there swarming in the light were thousands of these little guys. ( or should I say gals? ) Lady Bugs !
Literally a fog of them.

Eight or Nine came into the house with me and were walking on the kitchen ceiling next to the light fixture. So just before I went to bed I grabbed the old Dirt Devil had vac and poof.... gone. It was a great idea except that after I turned it off I figured they'd crawl back out so I again stepped outside to empty the bag ...saving the little critters. Wonder how many more came in as I humanely removed their siblings?
