Lady Bug-08-12-09

Lady Bug

Last summer I wrote about the serious aphid infestation on my honeysuckle bush, and my serendipitous encounter with lots of lady bug larvae on my fence (larvae that I then moved over to the honeysuckle). As it turned out, my rescue attempt was “too little, too late”, but I did end up with a decent population of lady bugs on my property in general, which was great!

Hopefully this year, with closer monitoring and (hopefully) more lady bugs in the area, the honeysuckle will be back to producing a nice show of flowers!

I love my ladybugs, two years ago I bought a bag of fertilizer and mistakenly got the “insect control” kind. The only insects it controlled were my ladybugs 🙁 I hate to use any kind of pesticide, and I was excited to see that my ladybugs are back this year! Lesson learned, pay close attention to the package label!
