Ladybird beetles or lady bugs make a fast snack
of aphids. I was pleased to see this one on its way to the infected
Not only do the adult ladybird beetles eat aphids,
but the ladybird beetle larva also eat the aphids. Enjoy your lunch
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.
Did you ever hear the Lady bug poem?
