Have you ever considered using ladybugs as pest control? Some people find it a very good idea. Others say they have problems actually getting the ladybugs to stick around and eat those darn aphids like they're supposed to once released. On the other hand, there are so many ladybugs that come in each package, even if you see a large crowd fly away, at least a few probably do stick around.
How many ladybugs come in a package? You might be surprised. A very small package contains 1,500. A large, gallon size contains approximately 70,000! You would think at least a few stragglers would stay behind. Whether you are a fan of ladybugs in your garden or not, you might consider lady fernin our fern section.
