Ladybugs and their larvae are beneficial insects. They will consume aphids, mealy bugs, thrips and other “bad” bugs.
Choose an area in your garden with aphids or other pests.
Water the area.
Release ladybugs after sundown (they will not fly away at night).
Place ladybugs in groups at base of infested plants. Ladybugs always crawl up.
Alligator shape, black w/orange spots.
