Wacky Pest Thursday: Lady Bugs
Hey there all of you Tri-County Pest Control fans and welcome to our newest Wacky Pest Thursday – where we will share with you all some wild facts we have come across from the pest world we have been entrenched in for more than three decades.

A hungrier and stronger lady bug could very well turn on a weaker member of the species for a meal, or snack.
Now, that’s what we call ‘hangry’!
