Suck it up

ABC News has this report about the invasion of Asian ladybugs (Harmonia axyridis) in Texas. A gardener interviewed for the story notes that so many of the insects have entered his house, he uses a vacuum to clean them up. Apparently they're also annoying to golfers, who have lady beetles landing all over them as they traverse the course - Don't they know it's good luck? (For Amanda :-) )
