Ladybugs, as they are called by the masses, are mean little buggers. They don't have long, curly eyelashes or wear bows because they are voracious predators even in their cute red/orange, black-spotted outfits. Ladybugs are now a symbol of biocontrol and Integrated Pest Management (IPM).

Although they tend to be flighty even if released properly, the Ladybugs that stick around will be diligent to chow down on their favorites: aphids, highly problematic creatures. Ladybug beetles also enjoy mites, insect eggs, etc.

Ladybugs can be very cost-effective and are a natural way to rid your lawn and garden of unwanted pests.

Each order will contain approx. 4500 (adults)
