        Comments about Beneficial Bugs Garden Pack:

        The Ladybugs and Nematodes came with instructions and were exactly what I expected. The Lacewings had no instructions whatsoever and were nothing more than a very small bag of misc debris. When I called, I was told to put them out in a bowl in a dry place and wait for them to hatch. I did this, but after many weeks, nothing happened.

            Comments about Beneficial Bugs Garden Pack:

            I had a terrible spidermite problem last summer and was desperately trying any natural killer I could. The lacewings arrived starting to hatch, and the ladybugs were voracious. I put out most of the lacewings right away and you could see them eating the spidermites! I was so pleased. I put the ladybugs out later, at night, and was watching them crawl all over the plants with my flashlight. But much to my dismay, I noticed they were going straight for the lacewing larvae and were not at all interested in eating the spidermites. The next day, all the lacewings had been eaten and I still had a spidermite problem. I had to go elsewhere to just buy lacewing larvae and some other more specific spidermite killing bugs. If you have a big garden with differing pest issues in different sections and can separate the lacewings and the ladybugs, you may be ok. But if you cannot, you may be better buying the bugs separately so the ladybugs don't eat all your lacewings and ignore the real pests. (FYI I would not recommend ladybugs for spidermites, but they're great for aphids!)

                Hard to track the effectiveness, as the beneficial insects are small, blend in, and can easily migrate out of the area. They do seem to have helped control some of the harmful insect pests in our gardens.

                    Comments about Beneficial Bugs Garden Pack:

                    The three components (ladybugs, lacewing eggs, & nematodes) arrived together. I was hoping to used the ladybugs and lacewings in my solarium. I ended up being double charged the supposed total (which differed on the two invoices I was given). The charges for one shipment were placed by Gardener Supply on 3 separate credit card statements. (What's up with that?!) The ladybugs arrived about 70% dead with the remainding 30% dying off completely within the next two days. The lacewings never hatched, but perhaps there's a delay and a miracle will happen. I somehow doubt it.

                    Comments about Beneficial Bugs Garden Pack:

                    I love this! We had a pretty bad Colorado Potato Beetle infestation. I did have to use some organic pesticide about two weeks before the beneficial bugs arrived. It was pretty easy to follow the directions for releasing the bugs. I haven't had any problems since and every now and then run into a lady bug while picking produce from the garden.
                    The only con I want to mention is that the bugs aren't available sepeartley. You're stuck buying the whole package and it is a little on the expensive side, imo.
