Releasing Lady Bugs for pest control

Over the past couple of years, we’ve had a bad aphid problem. In the past we’ve normally sprayed a with a mixture of dish soap and water on the infected plants. This year we decided to purchase and release 1500 lady bugs to help out from It’s About Thyme Nursery. Owner Chris Winslow is a walking encyclopedia of everything organic and natural.

The packaging from Natural Pest Controls states:

For the control of aphids, whitefly, plant mites, and also eats many insect eggs.
