Do you know that those small lady bugs can help you with your garden? Maybe we all should considering to do pests control in an organic way not just because we know exposure to pesticides has been linked to a long list of diseases and health problem for us human (the center of disease control has documented cases of farmworker illnes after exposure to pesticides) but it is also to protect our environment including air, water, soil, plants, animals, etc around us, for our earth and our offsprings =)
I found this at Lowe’s garden center: “LADIES IN RED” and here’s the writing at the back of the package
For control of
Aphids, Spider mites, Thrips, White Fly and other harmful plant pests on your roses, trees, shrubs and flowers in your garden and greenhouse. Adult ladybugs can consume up to 80 aphids or plant pests per day
Release ladybugs in the evening out of direct sunlight, after the area has been watered. Clip the corner of the mesh bag and sprinkle ladies out onto your plants, or shrubs. For trees you can tack the mesh bag to the trunk and let the ladies crawl up the tree.
