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, asparagus beetle larvae, thrips, alfalfa weevils, bean thrips, grape root worms, Colorado potato beetle larvae, whitefly, 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.

  • Ladybugs are shipped to you in the adult stage.
  • Each adult consumes about 5,000 aphids.
  • Within 8 to 10 days of release, each female ladybug lays 10-50 eggs daily on the underside of leaves.
  • In 2-5 days the larvae emerge as dark alligator-like flightless creatures with orange spots.
  • The larvae eat 50-60 aphids per day.
