Milkweed and Monarch Butterfly Mania

Ladybird Beetles Harmonia axyridis

Ladybird beetles or lady bugs make a fast snack of aphids. I was pleased to see this one on its way to the infected area.

Not only do the adult ladybird beetles eat aphids, but the ladybird beetle larva also eat the aphids. Enjoy your lunch Lady Beetle!

Ladybird Beetles often survive winter by gathering in groups. One winter I found a bunch of them in my bathroom!

Some gardeners (myself included) buy ladybugs through the mail. I release them to increase the local population.
