Product description


Adalia bipunctata, commonly known as Ladybug, is a garden superhero! Brightly colored with their signature orange and black pattern adorned by 12 spots – these lovable little insects can measure up to a mere 6mm in length! Native species of North America, they provide highly valued assistance while never causing any nuisance themselves.
Adalia bipunctata is a beneficial insect that is widely used as a biological control agent in agricultural and garden settings. The Ladybug feeds on aphids and other soft-bodied insects, helping to reduce populations of these pests.
The female lays clusters of yellow eggs on the undersides of leaves, and the larvae that hatch from these eggs feed on aphids and other small insects from June to September.

Application Instructions

To ensure a successful aphid management strategy, consider releasing ladybugs early in the season to prevent an infestation. The number of insects released depends on environmental factors as well as size and type of area being treated; however, one or two bugs per square meter should suffice for preventive maintenance while twenty-plus is recommended when dealing with existing populations.
