Non-native lady beetles have arrived in North America through accidental and intentional introductions (Wheeler, 1990; Obrycki & Kring, 1996). The plight of several non-native lady beetles is suggested to have been caused by the establishment of non-native species (Hoebeke & Wheeler, 1996). In this study, non-native lady beetles were found in higher abundance in undisturbed habitats. This suggests that non-native lady beetles do well where native plants dominate; this poses a particular threat to native lady beetles.
