4 years ago

Also known as Ladybirds or Lady Beetles, these red or orange with black dotted bugs are a favorite with many gardeners. They are colorful in the garden plus they also feed off aphids, which are destructive to most plants. In addition to just aphids Lady Bugs will eat insect eggs, mealybugs, whiteflies, plant and spider mites as well as small larvae from any other insect.

Attracting Lady Bugs to your garden is easy provided you plant flowers that the insects like. Any flowering plant that produces lots of pollen and nectar is sure to draw a Lady Bugs attention. They tend to prefer cup-shaped flowers such as tulips, lilies and even herbs such as fennel and dill. You can also spray a mixture of fresh water, yeast and whey around the plant`s leaves to further attract this pretty insect
