Harlequin Ladybirds

Ladybirds are normally regarded as beneficial insects. However, the introduced harlequin ladybird is regarded as a pest, because they will bite humans and they may come indoors and emit a foul odour and cause stains. There is also concern that it may impact indigenous species of ladybirds, because its voracious appetite enables it to out-compete them and it even eats other species of ladybirds.
