Lady bugs are red. Asian Beatles look the same but are orange. We had a bunch of Asian Beatles last week. No lady bugs.

Shop vac with a ladies legging as a catcher.
In the winter greenhouse buy them for 25 cents live for each one.
The fellow that did this drives a new truck each year, has 12 fridges running so they do not freeze.
Sometimes you make more money trapping 6 legs over 4 legged animals

Shot a turkey few years ago during archery season. You couldn't fit another stink bug in its crop.

Got them here too, it's been warm so not too many yet trying to get in, I stalk them with a spray bottle with 1/4 vinegar, 1/4 liquid dish soap, and half water, one spray knocks them down, they crawl a couple feet and tip over dead...great fun, lol, probably killed 10,000 just sitting on the screens and siding....
