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: 1,500 ladybugs cover approx.1000 sq. ft., 4,500 ladybugs cover approx. 3,000 sq. ft., 9,000 ladybugs cover approx. 6,000 sq.ft., 1 gallon covers approx. 1 – 5 acres.

Every once in awhile, my hibiscus gets an aphid invasion. Normally, I notice and clip the buds and flowers off and the problem stays manageable. Recently, I didn't and those darn aphids got out of control, then ants discovered the aphids and all their wonderful honeydew and moved in. My poor hibiscus started to suffer and it was just a bit of a mess.
Enter ladybugs. I have a son who is almost 4 and I thought that these would be great entertainment for him, as well as help get rid of our problem. The ladybugs showed up quickly and we put them in the fridge to calm them down. Then, we waited until just before dusk and started to release them by cutting one of the corners of the mesh bag they came in. We wound up putting them all over all of our plants since our area is relatively small and there were quite a lot of these guys. My son loved the ladybugs crawling all over and then seeing them eating the aphids and anything else that was attacking some of our plants (we also have some mini rose bushes, a small lemon tree, a small orange tree, some mint, and some peppers).
Within days, my hibiscus started looking a lot healthier and started to sprout more green leaves and healthy buds! Thank you ladybugs for saving my plants! :)
I think it's also important to note that I don't think there was even one ladybug in the bag that didn't survive the journey. I let most of them just crawl out of the bag themselves and had none left behind.
I've probably spent half my income on amazon over the years and only recently started to contribute to the reviews that I depend on so much before making a purchase, for no reason other than helping others choose wisely.[...]
They arrived 100% alive. Literally not a single dead Ladybug in the mesh. Packaging was high quality.
As per instructions, I placed them in the refrigerator to wait for dusk release (about six hours), and misted the garden before deployment.
And they WENT TO WORK. Ooooooh baby did they go to work. A few of them flapped off into the sunset, but the majority stayed. Of those that stayed, the majority went right for food (in the form of Leaf Miner and Moth eggs) or water, and some didn't even make it off the mesh before they started gettin' bizzay.
Releasing them was a blast - which is irrelevant to the product other than it's a lot more fun to dab ladybugs onto infested plants than it is to wear a respirator and spray them. Cheaper, too.
Putting out a saucer of water (with pebbles to walk on) and building a house for these little guys and gals first thing tomorrow morning (which admittedly I should have done at the start of the season, but I've never had this issue before).
The instructions say dawn or dusk release. I've read that dusk is better because they won't migrate in the dark. Whether that's correct and boosted the stay rate or it was just the food/water I have available, I don't know; but they arrived 100% alive, most stayed, and feeding and reproduction began immediately.
5/5 across the board.
