Homemade remedies for getting rid of ladybugs include making a camphor and menthol spray, filling a bowl with soapy water and sprinkling clove oil over infested areas. Fill a spray bottle with a mixture of menthol and camphor, and spray where ladybugs are hiding. The odor will drive them away.
A bowl filled with soapy water attracts and drowns the ladybugs when placed near a lighted area. Ladybugs are naturally drawn to the light when they emerge from their hiding places. Clove oil and bags of cloves repel ladybugs because they are sensitive to strong odors. Setting bay leaves in the infested area also helps drive ladybugs away.
