Order information:
I was impressed with the quick delivery of my order. The ladybugs arrived in a vacuum sealed bag two days after I ordered them. They appeared healthy.

I was in desperate need for 3800 live ladybugs, but the only supplier on amazon decided to sell them in boxes of 4500. I did not want to wait for my necessary quantity to go up for sale, so I was forced to order what was available.

As soon as I received them, I wanted to verify I received what I paid for. I was upset after spending 13 hours counting them when I realized I had actually only received 4491 ladybugs. Seeing as I paid (...) per ladybug, I'm pretty upset about not receiving my complete order. Then again, I only need 3800.

I quickly released the extra 691 ladybugs out my front door. Seeing as it's 14 degrees out, they didn't make it very far.

Now on to my plan:
I was laying in bed six weeks ago, and I was doing some math. Ladybugs reproduce at a rate of 180 per "couple" per month. This means that there is huge profit potential in the ladybug business. Let me explain this with some math.

3800 = 1900 Couples. This is what I wanted to start out with.
1900 couples x 180 babies output will net me 342,000 total ladybugs the first month.
The next month I would have 171,000 couples which would yield 30,780,000 in 30 days.

I'm sure you can see how many ladybugs I will have in a year. Basically I'll have a trillion, or something. I didn't get that far, I just knew I was going to be rich. And I say "was" because I found the downside of this so called "4500 ladybugs for (...)".

They're all males, and they're gay. It took me 30 days to realize this because they never had any babies. I missed all the signs, including the loose stool, and the bow legged walks they were exhibiting.

I'll rate these a four. Quick shipping, and I guess I received what I ordered. I just wish they would have stated more details on the product.

I received my lady bugs about 10 days after I ordered them. Most were dead on arrival. Perhaps the shipment was too long and hot but I won't order again.

Edit: The ladybugs did the trick! My plants are happy, healthy and bug free again!

I'm writing this review to explain how "next day air" works when ordering live ladybugs. It confused me for a while until I worked out what happened.

I live in a hot area so I requested next day shipping. I didn't want the bugs sitting in a 110 degree truck.

Ladybugs take "1 - 2 days to process" but I received notice that they shipped about an hour after I placed my order so I assumed I would get my bugs the next day.

Not so: that shipment was from the supplier to the vendor. That's what is meant by "1 - 2 days to process" The supplier ships next day air to the vendor.

Then the vendor shipped next day air to me, so it took two days from placing my order to receiving it. I probably shouldn't have received "supplier to vendor" shipping information. That made things confusing but I still appreciated knowing what was going on.

This is as best as you can get. You wouldn't want the vendor to keep a stock of live bugs on a shelf waiting for orders. Its better to get them from the supplier as needed.

My ladybugs did not come in the plastic tub that is pictured. Instead they came in a plastic net envelope that was securely heat sealed. The envelope was placed in box with air holes, loosely packed with shipping peanuts. They were well protected and I don't see how any of them could escape unless someone cut the envelope open.

I would recommend using next day shipping. I'm not sure how hardy ladybugs are but the packaging doesn't offer much protection against overheating. I don't think they could be well insulated and still have access to fresh air.

Half the bugs arrived slowly dying and the rest died shortly there after. I don't know if it was too early in the season, or just a bad batch. They were crawling out of the box in the post mans truck, he was't too happy.

The first time I ordered the lady bugs was great. This time over half of them where dead when they arrived.

They sent the ladybugs by usps and the bugs were late so I complained and boy did I get some response. They did ask me if I wanted and re-fund or a re-send but I did not receive the mail and I tried to tell them that I did not get their message. I finally received the bugs (about 10% dead) but the lady that I finally talked to did not make me feel as thought I was her client, but maybe just a pain. Good bugs not a great system.

Two day shipping took nine days. Lady bugs went from California to Canada to Texas and were mostly dead upon arrival.

This product was due to arrive on June 3. It was sent on May 27...supposedly. It finally arrived on June 13th! Naturally, three-fourths of the LIVE ladybugs were DEAD!! I bought them last year and had no problem, but would not recommend this to ANYONE. What a waste of money.

After 2 or 3 calls they did replace my lady bugs and they seem to be keeping my grape vines free from Avis. We have tons of gralpes this year but they are still very small but no avis. Thank you
