Asian Lady Beetles

“Harmonia axyridis is a large coccinellid beetle. Its colour ranges from yellow-orange to black, and the number of spots between 0 and 22. It is native to eastern Asia, but has been introduced to North America and Europe to control aphids and scale insects. It is now common, well known and spreading in those regions, and has also established in South Africa and widely across South America.

It is commonly known as the Harlequin ladybird (because it occurs in numerous colour forms). It is also known in North America as the multicolored Asian lady beetle, and (because it invades homes in October in preparation for overwintering) as Halloween lady beetle.[1][2] In Japan it is not generally distinguished from the seven-spot ladybird which is also common there.”

American Spider Beetles

“The American Spider Beetle is a scavenger found in various locations around the world. It is generally seen as a pest that needs to be exterminated as they can be found feasting on a large variety of foodstuffs wherever they are stored. Often mistaken for being part of the order Araneae for its spider-like appearance, it is actually part of the order Coleoptera. This beetle is notable for its survival in extreme conditions like desiccation and freezing temperatures.”
