If you have the measles or a toothache, you are in luck! From an article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Oct. 8th:

Noble history: Ladybugs are considered a symbol of good luck in many cultures. In the 1800s, English doctors used them to treat measles. They also believed that mashed ladybugs placed in an aching tooth cavity would control pain.

  Hello from NE WI where the Fall color is perfect today. I'm writing for the first time after lurking here since Spring. And just when I thought I knew it all, you all taught me a lot more! Please help with this one.

  With the Indian Summer we have a plague of "Asian beetles". They bite, although that's not a big problem. They fly into noses, mouths, open windows & doors, almost anywhere they're not wanted. When they first appeared on the scene, I thought they were my pals, the lady bug, but alas...They have little to zero benefits, & make a mess out of the house & shop. I tried bay leaves, essential oil of bay, & vacuum cleaners.

  If you haven't got a magic bullet, please provide a dose of levity to help me survive.

  Thank you, Paul Yeager
