Oh my! They are so cute I can't stand it, lol. I got 900 of the little buggers, and I released them into my gardens after following the directions and they are migrating to all the plants that have aphids and doing their thing. I hope it helps, though as the plants get larger they seem to be less bug prone. Heck, I love ladybugs (or lady beetles as the website calls them...) so they are welcome into our home any time.

I'm finding lady bugs in my grass. Haven't seen any aphids for them to munch on though.

I once went to a chuch that was OVERRUN with ladybugs INSIDE. I'm not sure you want them to come into your home Very Happy There is at least one species that will come inside at a certain time of year. I've also seen this problem in (of all places) a hospital! I sure love them, but I'd rather they stay outside where there are pests for them to eat.

Congratulations on your new garden friends. I wish I had more in my garden. With so many wants (praying mantis, ladybugs, beneficial nematodes, more worms, drip irrigation, more SFG beds, more flower beds, etc), I have to pace myself so my bank account can keep up! Very Happy

#1 - We always had problems with the ladybugs getting inside the house in the mountains of NC. They'd lay their eggs in the house somewhere, I never figured out where, so we'd have nymphs trying to get out in the spring. This was particularly true of a house I lived in on top of a hill with no trees around.

Definitely a truism! Our bank statement shows far more garden purchases than it ought to...I keep telling my husband that he'll see a drop in the grocery bills once we hit harvest time. Especially once we have enough tomatoes & stuff to can our own sauce, etc...once we purchase the canning stuff, that is. *sigh* The first year is an expensive one. No
