GIVE LIVE LADYBUGS AS A GIFT! Ladybugs make any occasion more memorable. Releasing ladybugs is a great way to add some unique fun to weddings, birthday parties, graduations and many other joyous occasions!
Ladybugs are one of the most widely used beneficial insects for controlling pests on everything you grow! Excellent aphid predators, ladybugs will also feed on chinch bugs, mealybugs, thrips, alfalfa weevils, soft scale, Colorado potato beetle larvae, whitefly, spider mites and many other soft-bodied insects and eggs that reside above the soil. A cost effective alternative to other treatments, the easy-to-release ladybug has a great reputation as a generalist predator.

Owner Response:We apologize for the inconvenience and less than satisfactory customer service experience. The ladybug stock can be extremely variable heading into the summer months due to the heat and ongoing drought in some of the collection sites. Green lacewings are a suitable alternative to the ladybugs for general pest control. If you are battling a specific pest, there may also be a species specific predator or parasite that can be introduced for ongoing control.
Top notch lady bugs!
