Aphids are among the most destructive insect pests on cultivated plants both in greenhouse, gardens and interiorscapes. The damage they do to plants has made them enemies of growers, farmers and gardeners. They are so damaging due to their abilities to reproduce asexually. Ladybugs are an excellent beneficial insect for controlling aphids.
Native ladybugs do not bite nor do they go into your home. The only eat aphids and other soft bodied pest insects and insect eggs. Adults are orange and black beetles that feed on aphids, mites, scales, thrips, whiteflies and beneficial insect food. Adult ladies feed primary at night and lay eggs. Eggs are white or yellow ovals and are laid in clusters on the undersides of your leaves. It is the larvae, having no wings that remain on your plants keeping control of pests. Larvae are black and orange alligator shaped (see photo from Lufa Farms to left). Both the adult and larvae stage are great general pest controllers. Look not for the ladies but to see your pest problems disappear.
