The Asian bugs were brought into Canada to deal with a really bad aphid problem several years ago. We were told they would die out after 1 or 2 years and were no threat to the native Lady Bugs, and yes they bite. To get some idea of how prolific these little buggers were, imagine this.
I was walking the beach on the North shore of Lake Erie in the Point Pelee area and as far as the eye could see there was a 1-2" wide line of red on the sand at the water line. This was made up of dead lady bugs washed ashore, the numbers are staggering!
So I guess some have survived and moved South to warmer climes.
