No - they're beneficial. They munch on aphids! *smack smack*. They can be a nuisance if they head inside during the cold months, though. Some folks vacuum the clusters of 'em up and put 'em outside somewhere away from their homes!

I just found out that these lady bugs were brought here to eat the purple loostrife that is in the ditches and marshes.
I guess its getting out of hand-these bugs are eating everyones fruit-peaches n pears are being wiped out!!!
These bugs bite you the second they land on you-Ive been bitin proably 50 times out in my garden-its unreal!!!
GOOD THINKING-like the vine down south!!!
