We now have ladybugs in stock!
Ladybugs, also known as lady beetles, are beneficial predaceous insects. They are well known for their appetite for aphids and are great for releasing in a greenhouse as it provides a closed and controlled environment.
After receiving your live ladybugs, leave bag sealed and place in refrigerator to calm the beetles from their transporting experience. Release at early evening as night time allows them to settle in, find food and water, and get acquainted with their new space, your home garden. Sprinkle some water in your garden before their release to provide immediate moisture. Once they’re settled in, their moisture needs will be met from eating aphids and other plant pests.
