we happen to have had a home where the ladybugs would return year after year and use our sunroom for their diapause. i did a little reading at that time and learned that they leave a pheromone behind so that their ancestors will know where they can have a nice winter retreat. and yes, we could smell those little buggies in our meditation space... it was somewhat creepy to have so many critters in our home, but it was also somewhat of an honor to know they were cozy there... we had also learned that they often die during diapause due to dehydration so we kept a humidifier going in the heat of the day to keep them hydrated. thanks for the awesome info! we'll be bringing a homeschool group out this week and i can't wait to see the throngs of beetles. julee
