I have not seen one single lady bug this fall ( Northern Ohio), any one else have them? Hope they are gone for good.

Wait till you have aphids all over your plants. You'll be singing a different tune.

Yeah I was surprised! The typical reaction that all bugs MUST be got rid of? But I gathered from this news group some time back that there are at least two lady bug types? One type can bite? But anyone recall the facts?

If you lived in Northern Ohio ... you would understand. It's not just a few Lady Bugs out by the rose bushes ... It's zillions of them (well a bug that looks very similar). Last year I could turn on my ceiling fan and you literally could hear them being blown off and clicking against the wall. There were so many in my garage 2 yrs ago (basement garage) that when I backed my car out you could hear them *crunch* under the tires. I found them in my baby's crib, in the toilet, in the washer and dryer, in the walls, pretty much everwhere. Strangely enough I never found them in our food.

Indeed, the aphids never got into my house. Gone for good I hope.

Come to think of it, I have seen any yet either (Columbus area). It is still a little early, but I would expect to see some now that we have had a few cold spells.
It would be nice if they all decided to move, but somehow I doubt it. Of course I want our regular ones back along with the honey bees.

Haven't seen any (Asian Lady Beatles) here in the Chicago area. Last year while setting up our Halloween display, they were everywhere, including on us. And they do bite or pinch or whatever. This year there were only a few Box Elders.

I think you are talking of the asian lady beetle. It looks something like a ladybug, but is brown with black spots rather than red with black. I don;t thin it is related at all to the ladybug. Do a google on either and you'll find info.

Lady beetle is the proper name of what we call "ladybugs". The Multi-colored Asian lady beetle is just one of over 5000 cousins of what you are referring to ladybugs.

I've seen only a very few (Northwest Ohio). So glad. Maybe they come around only every hundred years. I seem to remember they came last year after a freeze and warmup.

Not likely, they are not native to North America. They are an import. A rather poor import.

There are a few hardy lady bugs here in Eastern Iowa but I have seen them only when the weather is warmer. Most have gone into hibernation.

There's one called something like a Japaneese Lady bug which looks similar to the real Lady Bug but is more orange and I think it bites. Also have read if squished it stinks; have squished a couple and have smelt a slight odor but no where near a stink. OTOH I'm squishing inside a small piece of paper or napkin, depending on what I have handy.

The wet spring/summer and cooler temps have helped to keep the beetles in check. They'll be back. Enjoy the break from this pesky nuisance.
