Well I am going to rock your world. There are to many ladybugs here in Massachusetts. When we looked at our house in October I remember them all across the back of our house and I remember the builder saying they were good luck. If that is the case than lots of "lucky for me things" should be starting anytime.
I do not mind any type of bug as long as it is outside. Even spiders of whom I desperately hate I can leave alone as long as they are in the great outdoors. But if a bug is inside he better look out. I am highly trained with the broom, the shoe, (as long as it isn't mine) and even if desperate a wad of toilet paper. I have done hand to hand combat with some pretty serious spiders. The kind that are so big that even though they are long dead and gone you still jump over the last spot you saw them....just in case. I wish I could go back to my innocent days of merrily using the vacuum but I have acquired an irrational fear that even though you suck them up they are still alive in the vacuum and they just crawl back out. I wish someone could really tell me if particuarly the spiders die in the vacuum or if they just crawl out and think that that was a fun ride. So because of my lack of information I have to see bug guts to feel safe and sadly hear a squish.
I never would have dreamed that I would kill a ladybug they do not fall in the spider category at all. But they have committed an offense. They are in my house. Not just one cute little one that you benevolently catch and open the door to let go free. They are here in high numbers. Miriam counted 17 in her room. So I debated...how could I even think it. But I had to. So I killed ladybugs.....lots of them. So I can kiss my goodluck goodbye.
