I totally agree with the other poster. Don't you remember as a kid saying "Fly away, fly away your house is on fire" and then blowing on a ladybug so she'd fly away?" They are good for your garden. If they come into the house just pick them up carefully and take them outside and blow on them and they'll fly away. I just posted also to say that the Peonie bush needs small ants to also open the buds. I never knew that when I first moved into my home and was trying to get rid of them. Now I just let them do their job and I love seeing ladybugs or butterflies or bees in my garden. Marcy are you certain that you want to get rid of them? Actually, they eat aphids. If they couldn't find any aphids to eat they would leave. The fact that they are hanging around indicates that the ladybugs are doing something beneficial.

What bug can you use to get rid of ladybugs?

I can't imagine anyone wanting to get rid of ladybugs. The number of aphids and spider mites they consume more than makes up for any possible annoyance they might cause. If you have lots of them, that means they are finding lots of food -- i.e., the aphids and spider mites they eat. If you take out the ladybugs, their food supply will probably grow out of control very quickly, and then you'll have a lot bigger problem.That said, I think praying mantis (insects of the order Mantodea) might feed on ladybugs, but I'm not sure. I've just never come across anyone wanting to eliminate the ladybugs!
