Yes, it’s true Lady Bugs just love to eat Aphids/ Scale and consume a huge amount on a daily basis and can believe it or not put away up to 60 per day.
But, how do we attract these lovely little creatures into our garden?Well, if you plant companion style you will have no trouble getting these fellas to visit the garden. The love all types of Parsley, some local weeds and yes large leaf plants such as Pumpkins, Squash, Watermelon etc, because they like to take cover under the large leaves from the hot sun, storms and most of all predators.
So, plant all of the above, don’t spray and in a few months head out and check the population. I am sure you will be surprised just how many you will find.
If you want to give your garden a big Lady Bug boost then just buy some!
