You see them in the fall when they come indoors to winter. Then you get them again the spring when they try to find their way back out to nature. They're particularly attracted to light-colored houses.

Those look like the ones. Also found this: BBC News - Ladybird spotting: British v foreign bugs I'm going to take a look now.
*EDIT* Seems we have a mixture of the Orange Harlequins, which are killing the other ones, and the Two-Spots which according to that article are the smallest and most at risk from the large Harlequins.'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe.

IOW, if you squash them, they bleed from their knees and stain your wall or curtains with yellow spots.

To solve the problems in later years: Seal around windows; consider painting the house dark; or consider taking off shutters around windows (the bugs are attracted to shutters as a spot to winter, then the heat from the windows causes them to crawl inside through cracks).Spent the last year
Rocky Mountain way
Couldn't get much higher
Out to pasture
Think it's safe to say
Time to open fire

I received a series of unexpected messages from a super awesome person.At the time they cut me free. I was brimming with defiance. Doctors looking down on me. Breaking every law of science.
How'd I ever end up here? A latent strain of color blindness. Then it seemed to dawn on me. Haemoglobin is the key

Finally killed a fly that had been around the house for two weeks.
Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it

That English professor that likes me for my writing talent was all hyper today. She said hello to me right as we entered the room.
