rackcollector--- yeah that's what I heard about them bugs too, farmers are using them. They sure are a nuisance though. My dad actually found some sort of mix you can add w/water and spray it on your house and those lady bugs will stay away for around 2-3 months. They won't get into your house either. The mix is totally safe for all siding on houses. If I remember right, it's kinda pricey though. I think around $40 for a bottle of it,,, but there's alot in it.
