Ten years of invasion: Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) in Britain
Helen E. Roy and Peter M. J. Brown

The harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis was first recorded in Britain in 2004. Tens of thousands of people have provided records of H. axyridis and other species of ladybirds which provides an important dataset for large-scale and long-term research. This Invited Review makes use of the UK Ladybird Survey dataset to review the last ten years of invasion by the harlequin ladybird. The Review highlights how declines in native ladybirds are associated with the spread of H. axyridis, and that the successful invasion of H. axyridis is due to several factors, including its high reproductive capacity and its high resistance to natural enemies within the invaded range.
