Product Description

We Guarantee Live Delivery! ****Warning**** Please note if temperatures in your state are below 30 degrees or above 80 degrees we recommend upgrading your order to expedited or faster!!!! WARNING - WE DO NOT SHIP FRIDAY - SUNDAY WE ARE CLOSED AND WE DO NOT SHIP ON THESE DAYS TO ENSURE OUR BUGS DON'T SIT IN A WAREHOUSE ALL WEEKEND Ladybugs are general predators that feed on a variety of slow-moving insects including Aphids, Moth eggs, Mites, Scales, Thrips, Leaf Hoppers, Mealybugs, Chinch Bugs, Asparagus Beetle larvae, Whitefly and other slow-moving insects. Ladybugs are a must-have for organic gardening or organic farming. A ladybug eats insects during both the adult and larval stages, so you can buy ladybugs as adults and continue to have live ladybugs eating through other parts of their life cycle as they reproduce. Adults are shiny, hemispherical beetles, often reddish-orange or yellow, with black markings. Larvae are black, with conspicuous legs and orange spots on their backs. The larvae are often compared in appearance to tiny alligators, and are similarly aggressive in consuming insects. The larvae move from plant to plant on leaves. Larvae pupate on the upper leaf surfaces, plant stems and twigs. Eggs are yellowish-orange ovals, laid on end in clusters of 10 to 50. Shipped: In mesh bags, or natural, unbleached, reusable cotton bags. Store In a regular household refrigerator for one to two weeks max. Release Tips: Release at dusk, after spraying some plants with water, so they can drink. Release near infestations in small amounts over a two week period. Release Rates: 1,600 ladybugs covers aprox.100 sq. feet. Half pint covers aprox. 3,000 sq. feet. 1 gallon covers aprox. 1 - 5 acres Heavy infestations use 1-2 gallons per acre.

This is the first year I've had trouble with aphids on my tomato plants. They were looking pretty sickly, at first I thought they just weren't great quality plants, or perhaps I planted them too early - we had a really wet spring. On closer inspection the leaves were covered with tiny little tomato-life-sucking aphids. I browsed around the web to find a solution and settled on these ladybugs, largely because the reviews for the 4500 qty were so good. I ordered them, it took about a week to get them (we had a holiday weekend and they came USPS) and in spite of the mail carrier sticking the poor guys in our enclosed mailbox on a hot summer day they were all (save 2 or 3) alive. They come in a mesh bag with straw and a cotton ball with presumably water, enclosed in a cardboard protective sheath. When we got them it was after 5pm and the little guys were going nuts in the bag so I decided to go ahead and release them. I could hardly get the bag open before they were streaming out. They come hungry too. I released them right onto my plants and it was amazing to see them encounter an aphid and immediately chomp it. It's like a private nature show. Totally happy.

Ordered two packs of 1,500 Ladybugs last Sunday, and they arrived Thursday - precisely when predicted.
Having read other reviews I was expecting a minimum 20% mortality rate, but I am pleased to say I did not notice any dead. Is this a record?
The Ladybugs are packed in a nylon mesh bag which in turn is in a small cardboard box. I carefully slit the top of the bag with a craft knife and immediately the little creatures started emerging. It was then just a simple task to sprinkle them around the yard.
The last few - the dopey ones - couldn't find the opening in the bag so I slit another two sides and opened the mesh fully, and the job was finished.
My wife wanted to name them all but I persuaded her not to.
A great company to deal with.

I recently ordered these 1500 ladybugs to take care of some aphids on my tomatoes. They arrived quickly and were all amazingly alive despite spending their final few hours of travel inside of a hot metal interrogation chamber provided by the USPS. My kids absolutely loved turning these loose onto the soon to be doomed aphid population. However after consuming all living pests in sight these lady bugs moved onto other locales. I thought they came trained to stand guard for all eternity of only MY tomato plants. I repeatedly called for them to return but all I saw was little red wing casings fluttering away into the wind while I heard gentle mockery waft across the breeze. The next time I order these I will have to also order the little lady bug ball and chain sets for sale here on Amazon. I am currently unsure how long it will take my children to fasten all 1500 lady bugs into their custom made ball and chain sets. I would gladly order from this company any time in the future I need to practice inter species warfare in my tomato garden.

They all arrived living just as promised. I built them a home with a plastic tray and a clear plastic dome top with two holes at the top. I put some raisins and a wet sponge in there and they have taken up residence and started to reproduce. The larva that the eggs become are what eat most of your pests anyways so thats what you want. Ive tried just dumping them in my garden and that was a complete failure. I suggest a method like mine if you want them to stay around

I ordered these for a photography project. The ladybugs came in a mesh plastic bag package, which was inside of a cardboard box with holes in it, which was inside of another box. There was a little instruction booklet on how to release the ladybugs and a little vial of nectar that you mix with water for them to eat. Very cool product.

Purchased these little beauties to help with a rather large aphid problem in my front flower beds.

They arrived quickly and I followed the instructions that came with them. They seemed pretty sleepy/lethargic when I first got them, but sprinkled a teeny bit of water on the provided piece of cotton inside the packaging and that perked a several of them up.

Since I planned to release them the next evening and I keep the temperature in my house pretty low, decided that I wouldn't go the refrigeration route (if you read the instructions carefully, you'll see that they say that's a-okay)

Some of the other comments made me wonder if perhaps the ladybugs had gone dormant rather than were actually dead. The next evening, as I was preparing to release them, I just took the little bag they were shipped in and placed it in the shade outside while I followed the instructions for how to prepare the area in which I wanted to release them.

Boy, did they perk up fast when they began to warm up! I really think that change in temperature makes a huge difference. By the time I had watered the area and sprayed the nectar, the entire bag was busy, busy with ladybugs checking things out!

Had a great time releasing them and took lots of pictures. It was actually really fun! Not a single bug in the package was dead!

It's been a couple of days and I just went to check on things... I can still find the ladybugs going about their business on my bushes and flowers and I can see a marked improvement in the aphid problem. They're doing their job beautifully!

I thought it was also helpful that the seller included not only clear and easy instructions for how to care for the ladybugs before releasing them and the proper way to release.
