Some unwelcome visitors swarm an apartment in Kew Gardens, Queens, as residents say hundreds of ladybugs descended on some of their balconies.
Local say the insects are becoming a big nuisance.
"It's hard because I want to leave my balcony door open. I'm trying to clean, and they're all flying in. I had to close the door, so it's been very inconvenient for me," said a local. "It's just gross, because they're flying on you and getting in your hair, your shirt. You get itchy, gross."
NY1 reached out to a few area pest control and landscaping companies, and they say ladybugs are known to move about this time of year due to the rainy weather.
They may also be attracted to light-colored buildings.
Experts say ladybugs pose no risk and are beneficial for gardens.
