Do You Count The Spots On Ladybugs?
Everytime I see a ladybug, I have to make a wish and count the dots on their backs!Ladybugs are most common of all beneficial insects, these pretty predators feed on aphids, chinch bugs, asparagus beetle larvae, thrips, alfalfa weevils, bean thrips, grape root worms, Colorado potato beetle larvae, whitefly, and mites, as well as many other soft-bodied insects and eggs. Extremely cost effective, too!
Imagine ordering live ladybugs….but then again I had to order ants for my son’s school project, you just never know.
