Ladybugs are general predators that feed on a variety of slow-moving insects
including Aphids, Moth eggs, Mites, Scales, Thrips, Leaf Hoppers, Mealybugs,
Chinch Bugs, Asparagus Beetle larvae, Whitefly and other slow-moving
insects. Ladybugs are a must-have for organic gardening or organic farming.
A ladybug eats insects during both the adult and larval stages, so you can buy
ladybugs as adults and continue to have live ladybugs eating through other
parts of their life cycle as they reproduce.
Adults are shiny, hemispherical beetles, often reddish-orange or yellow, with
black markings. Larvae are black, with conspicuous legs and orange spots on
their backs. The larvae are often compared in appearance to tiny alligators,
and are similarly aggressive in consuming insects. The larvae move from plant
to plant on leaves. Larvae pupate on the upper leaf surfaces, plant stems and
twigs. Eggs are yellowish-orange ovals, laid on end in clusters of 10 to 50.
