Ok, i dont know if any of you have problems with animals/insects, but in Ky, there was a real bad problem with insects, eating the crops. So, the state or something, brought over things called lady bugs...... This was a few years ago, and NOW there is a problem with an over infestation of lady bugs. So now they are talking about bringing in some other thing to take care of the lady bugs. And then they will over populate and will have to bring in another thing etc......


But today while i was going out on a fire run(member of a vol fire dept) I saw some things i have only saw once before(saw it a few days earlier) but it looks just like a wasper, but it has the colors of a yellow jacket. Its got me wondering if this is what they brought over for the lady bugs. But the thing is, they are VERY fiesty. It was attacking everybody around, until we killed it. The other one i saw before did the same thing.

tl;dr- State gov brings in stuff to kill stuff, so they have to bring in stuff to kill the stuff that killed the original stuff. :D

Anybody have opinions on this?

Are you talking about Yellow Jackets or Hornets?

I agree, thats why i dont understand why they are doing something to get rid of them.... altho they do smell like crap.

where did you even read or hear about this? an animals and insects are completely different things. i dont understand where you got the motivation to post this.. so stupid..
I know they are diff, but ya know, they release animals also. But i read this from several diff newspapers. Motivation to post, well, no worse than half the other stuff thats posted. :shrug:

and its not a yellow jacket(to big) or a hornet(looks nothing like it)

there are a different species of lady bugs. Slighty lighter in color and they are just taking over everything... they are literally everywhere

and nothings slowing them down.

the ladybugs they brought over are NOt cute little red ladybugs. they are orange/yellow and bite it' actualyl very rare to see a red ladybug in the central states and we hate it. also the new ones seems ot have multiplied ina huge way becasue ther'e smore and mroe of them each year adn they are EVERYWHERE! i knwo so many peopel who constantly have thier vaccoums out so they can suck up the damn ladybugs.
