Millions of ladybirds carrying a sexually transmitted disease are invading the UK reports The Sun newspaper.
The arrival of warmer weather has seen the arrival of Harlequin ladybirds, identifiable by their black wings. The insects, from Asia, carry an STI, Laboulbeniales fungal disease.
Humans cannot catch the disease but bites cause a bump and stinging sensation.
There are reports in Liverpool of them even dropping from the ceiling into people’s food.
Pest-control expert Steve McGrail recommends sealing windows to keep them out.
