Was Ladybugs - Invasive?

Dear all;
	It strikes exceedingly odd that with the Government ranting 
over invasive plants, their own introduction of various just as 
potentially invasive insects is looked on positively.

	On earth day there on page 1 was Sec. of Int. Norton 
releasing "exotic' insects in the Everglades to control "invasive" 
plants. (Quotes mine). Odd when the government intentionally 
introduces one kind of pest it is "exotic', but when gardeners 
accidentally introduce them they are 'invasive".

	Attitude and media. Hum bug.
