Control your Bad Bugs with Lady Bugs

Posted on July, 18

If you are looking for an organic way to control insects that damage your  plants,  get rid of pesky insects Mother Nature’s way:

Release ladybugs into your garden at dusk and let this tiny bug go to work for you. They look sweet, but to other insects, they are one scary critter!
Ladybugs, also called lady beetles or ladybird beetles, are a very beneficial group. They are natural enemies of many insects, especially aphids and other sap feeders. A single ladybug may eat as many as 5,000 aphids in its lifetime. The ladybug larvae are just as important as the adults. They come out hungry and prowl for soft-bodied insects such as mites, aphids, and whiteflies. It’s at this stage that many people mistake this insect for a plant-eating pest.
We currently have ladybugs in stock, located in our check-out building.
