I don't like to spray chemicals in my garden so I decided to try a ladybug release. I bought a container of ladybugs from my local nursery.
I was working in the yard yesterday and started pulling weeds. I noticed had a whole bunch of lady bugs all over the little grassy hill I have. Lots of larvae and pupae. I had to Google what the pupae was. I had never seen them before.
I was a little sad when the ladybugs went off to greener pastures last year but it looks like I got to have a second generation this year. What a great bonus!
