My boys and I were at our local hardware store the other day and stumbled upon a Ben & Jerry’s half pint sized container of ladybugs you can take home as your garden warriors. As it turns out, the ladybug is an aggressive “beneficial” predator. They consume bad bugs that attack and wreak havoc on your garden and yard plants.
Your pet ladybugs should be released in the evening when it is cool or overcast. My boys got a huge kick out of heading outside in their pajamas before bedtime to release their new friends into our yard.
