Lady Bugs 64/365
I went to the nursery yesterday and at the checkout counter they had containers of 500 Lady Bugs for $8. I was shocked to discover they came with directions too. FACT - Lady Bugs don’t fly at night. So the recommended release approach is to wait until after dark and then water the plants where you want them to nest. Upon release the Lady Bugs will immediately seek out food and water. Since its dark they wont fly away and having water right there increases the odds that they’ll stick around.
