This is not news!
These little ladies are just about everywhere you look. The Asian lady beetle was introduced into the USA from the Orient as a way to control the soybean aphid. Apparently the aphids had a banner summer which has resulted in a similar proliferation of the lady beetle. They are trying to get into your house/cabin because they know winter is coming.
The recommended defense is to seal the cracks in the house and vacuum them up.
I personally prefer them to the tent caterpillar.
