Found these live ladybugs at Lowe’s today. Just curious if anyone has used these to control scale, spider mites etc. I take it that you can’t be successful with these if you are using pesticides at the same time. Thanks.
Thank you. I have a secluded area where I have some junipers in training pots. I’m thinking of doing a test run on those to see if it’s any good.How much $ and how many bugs in the box? The problems with ladybug-mediated control of aphids etc. is it’s challenging to keep them around in high enough density to do the functional work, but if it’s not terribly expensive, roll those dice! I think many of us here would be interested in hearing about your experiences!
Haha, makes sense. If there is no food like spider mites or scale, why would they stick around. Your bonsai must be free of pests.Yup. Flew away pretty much immediately.
