Lady bugs out of RV

I love camping in the fall but on a nice sunny day my rv gets swarmed with ladybugs I've covered all the access points but they still seem to get in. Does anybody have any good tricks for keeping them out?

No tricks for keeping them out, but we keep a roll of duct tape handy and rip off a piece, stick it to the lady bugs (several), then fold the tape over and seal around the edges. That way we don't squish them since they stink, but we are able to throw the tape away and they are stuck inside. We resorted to the duct tape because I was tired of hauling out the sweeper to suck them up every 5 minutes. Good luck!

Not the old Ladybug we grew up with. These are the Asian Lady Beetle. Imported for pest control, the hibernate over the winter and re-emerge. Don't sting but they do bite and stink if crushed...

I have found that spraying residual ant killer around all openings works for a week or more. The first time I sprayed it around our house doors and windows, I had to use the leaf-blower to clear the porch of them.
