    One big indicator about Asian ladybugs: When you mess with them, they leave a yellow spot and give off a slight unpleasant odor. So you can't just squash them, or you'll have small yellow stains on everything. From the Wiki link: These insects will "reflex bleed" when agitated, releasing hemolymph from their legs. The liquid has a foul odour (similar to that of dead leaves) and can cause stains.

    IOW, if you squash them, they bleed from their knees and stain your wall or curtains with yellow spots.
    I have to confess that I had gambled on my soul and lost it with heroic insouciance and lightness of touch. The soul is so impalpable, so often useless, and sometimes such a nuisance, that I felt no more emotion on losing it than if, on a stroll, I had mislaid my visiting card. --Charles Baudelaire

    Yeah my mum wanted to squash them, I suggested we collect them up.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Yeah, some people vacuum them up with a stocking tied inside the hose to collect them. (The Wiki article describes this method.) I just have a few bugs now and then, so I scoop them up with a piece of cardboard, drop them in a coffee cup with an inch of water in it (they can swim but can't crawl out), then throw out the contents of the coffee cup outside.

    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).

    I received a series of unexpected messages from a super awesome person.
    Just looking for a protector, God never reached out in time, There's love, that is a saviour, But that ain't no love of mine
    My Love it kills me slowly, Slowly I could die, And when she sleeps she hears the blues, Sees shades of black and white

    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.

    When all else fails, I know someone on the internet cares. And it's comforting.
    Yet I know, if I stepped aside
    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life
