I have many of these dark bugs…they look like lady bugs except they have dark brown shells that are trapezoid shaped. They tend to cluster. Any ideas?

Lablab Bugs

Dear Stephen,
You have invasive exotic Lablab Bugs that feed on Kudzu as well as soybeans.  We just posted another letter and we refer you to the information there.

    Ok posted comment in the fall about these Lablab’s. The mild winter did not help. When the temp hit low 80 for a couple of days-they are now out in force. How can we get rid of them?

      Hi Roland,
      We do not give extermination advice, but perhaps one of our readers may be able to provide you with information. Since they are found in association with the invasive kudzu vines, you might want to try eliminating the kudzu you have growing on your property.
