Attract beneficial ladybugs to your yard and garden
Easy to hang with included cord
Set of 2 feeders
Aphids are the most common garden pest and are difficult to control by spraying. Luckily, one
ladybug can eat dozens of aphids a day, seeking them out wherever they hide. Ladybugs also
prey on mealybugs, scale, leaf hoppers and mites. Bait these natural bamboo feeding stations with a raisin or two to
welcome ladybugs into your garden and provide food when aphids are scarce.
I bought these to have a way to feed the ladybugs that I ordered until my garden got going. It was quite fun to watch them all eating the raisins in the feeders when we first released them. However, after only two weeks out in the garden, one of the feeders has completely cracked through the bottom leaving about a 1/4 inch space between the two sides. The same feeder also is cracked on the top so I am just waiting for it to finish splitting apart at the top and breaking completely. Great idea but poor quality bamboo since it splits and breaks...I doubt these feeders will even make it through one season. :(
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A few days after setting up the ladybug feeder, I saw a ladybug snacking on a raisin. A few more days later, I took a peek inside and saw that the ladybug decided to lay her eggs in there! The eggs look like they are getting ready to "hatch". I'm looking forward to seeing if the little ones stick around.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
