1. Get pieces of wood or other material to build the house. Wood is the way to go when building a home that will last the ladybugs many seasons. Cut a cedar or pine board with a table saw or get it pre-cut at a home improvement store. Plan on adjusting the length of each piece according to how big you want the ladybug house to be. For an average square-shaped house, cut 3 panels 5 ⁄2 in (14 cm) long and 5 in (13 cm) tall. These will be for the front, back, and bottom panels. Cut 2 panels 5 ⁄2 in (14 cm) long and 2 ⁄2 in (6.4 cm) tall for the sides. Finish the house with a top panel 5 ⁄2 in (14 cm) long and 4 in (10 cm) tall. For easier houses, make use of a sturdy piece of cardboard. Thick card stock works well. Alternatively, get an old shoebox or a clay pot to skip the construction work.
2. Sand the wood with 180-grit sandpaper to remove rough edges. Work on the wood pieces 1 at a time. While maintaining gentle pressure, slowly rub the sandpaper against the wood. Go over the entirety of each piece of wood until they all look even and feel smooth to the touch. When you’re finished, wipe the wood with a soft cloth to remove any dust. Wear a dust mask when sanding to avoid breathing in wood dust. Work in a ventilated area and consider using a vacuum cleaner to capture loose dust. Use only fine-grit sandpaper. Anything coarser than 180-grit increases the chances of leaving big scratches on the wood.
3. Nail the side panels to the back panel. Choose 1 of the 5 ⁄2 in × 5 in (14 cm × 13 cm) panels to be the back end of the house. Set the side panels against it. Make sure the side panels are flush with the longer end of the back panel. Then, nail them in place with 3 ⁄2 in (8.9 cm)-long finishing nails set in each corner. You will need 4 nails total to connect these panels. Position the nails about 1 in (2.5 cm) from the edges of the boards to keep them strong. Another way to connect the panels is with a hot glue gun or with wood glue. The house will not be as sturdy, but it will still be useable.
4. Connect the front panel to the house’s side panels. Get another of the 5 ⁄2 in × 5 in (14 cm × 13 cm) panels and position it opposite from the back panel. Line up the panel’s longer edges so they are flush with the side panels. Then, secure the front panel in place with another set of 4 nails.

How do you make a Ladybug House?

Set up a bug box or terrarium to house the ladybugs. Line the bottom of the box or terrarium with shredded paper. Add folded pieces of cardboard for the bugs to crawl on. Place some small limbs of foliage throughout the ladybug enclosure.

Why am I finding ladybugs in my house?

A. Ladybugs are attracted to the light colored houses. Especially, homes that have a clear southwestern sun exposure. Older homes tend to experience more problem with aggregations due to lack of adequate insulation. The ladybugs come in through small cracks around windows, door ways and under clap boards.

Where to place Ladybug House?
