5P330C – Ladybugs Hippodamia convergens
Ladybugs are probably the most universally known beneficial insect. They are found nearly everywhere and are regarded by many gardeners and farmers as a sign of general well being in the insect complex. They are usually most successful at aphid control, but also eat mites, scales, mealybugs and a whole host of other soft-bodied insects.
Ladybugs hibernate in the Winter months and also tend to go inactive during the hottest parts of the Summer. They are heavy feeders during the Spring and Fall which coincides with the times of highest aphid populations.
