Ladybird invasion hits Wrexham!

Have you noticed an increase in ladybirds near your home today? Well, you’re not alone.

A number of residents have been in touch with Wrexham.com today about the ‘invasion’ and ‘attack’ of ladybirds.

It is thought the ladybirds are part of the ‘Harlequin species’ and there are a lot more of them than usual due to the recent hot summer weather.

The breed of ladybirds originate from Asia and North America and fly in on mild autumn winds. However with the temperatures starting to cool down, it is believed that the insects are looking for places to hibernate – and ending up in houses across Wrexham.
