The lemon candle
As ladybug aversion
Seems to do the job
My original last line was going to be “Doesn’t really work” and I planned to stage a picture of one of the many ladybugs in the house next to a lemon candle. But wouldn’t you know it — I couldn’t find a single living ladybug in the house!
I did find one that was quite dead, dry, and brittle, and it certainly wasn’t photo-worthy.
Plus it wouldn’t have been honest.
Lemon candles may really work as an aromatic solution to ladybugs in the house.
Either that, or the ladybugs are enjoying a snow day.
