Ladybugs - A Bug You Want to Have

 "Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home! Your house is on fire and your children are alone!".... or stay and protect my garden, please!

"Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home! Your house is on fire and your children are alone!".... or stay and protect my garden, please!

Sam released 6,000+ ladybugs into the nursery last week! It really was something special.

 

 Why do we love ladybugs so much?  They're an organic and chemical-free way to protect your garden! Ladybug larvae snack on bad insects like aphids and other soft-bodied insects.

 

If you're interested in ordering some for your garden, let us know!  We place an order every week or so.  We'll give you tips for keeping them around your garden too.... like did you know ladybugs don't fly at night?  So release them right before sunset!

 

 These little guys (and ladies) are a great way to teach kids about beetles and insects too!
