Hungry Ladybugs and Mantises Devour Aphids and other Insect Pests

  • Beneficial bugs are a safe, natural pest control
  • Control aphids, beetles, grasshoppers and more
  • Shipping begins in late March and continues into November

Ladybugs and praying mantises are voracious predators of many garden insect pests, including aphids, whiteflies, spider mites and mealy bugs. We'll send you approximately 1,500 adult ladybugs or an egg case of 200-300 praying mantis eggs — each adult will eat several times its weight in insect pests, daily!

  • Ladybugs (Hippodamia convergens) help control aphids, whiteflies, spider mites, and mealybugs
  • Mantises (Tenodera aridifolia sinensis) eat aphids, beetles, grasshoppers, caterpillars, moths, mosquitoes, and other insects

            Comments about Beneficial Bugs:

            Ladybugs arrived in a timely manner but the shipping box was hot to the touch. Inside the container bugs were swarming. The product which was supposed to cool them was lukewarm. Shipping to AL in summer requires some knowledge of the temperature. I released them that evening fearing they would be more stressed if refrigerated after being overheated. They disappeared quickly; have not seen them since.

                If your garden is pretty clean of bad bugs, they'll go off into the neighborhood which it=s OK - their ggggg-grandkids will be around. When I got them the weather was cooler than normal - they were happy for foliage to snuggle in.

                  Comments about Beneficial Bugs:

                  At least three different kinds of aphids were covering our fruit, silver maple, and flowering plum trees. I released the three thousand lady bugs all over our acre property. In two weeks, the aphids were largely gone. A month later, I have to hunt to find any aphids. Great solution!

                    The lady bugs came right away, seemed in good shape but I waited 2 days to release them in my garden. The instructions were clear (release at dusk to keep them in the area). The next day it seems they all crawled out of the package.

                      I have used these eggs before with good success, They were very difficult to find this year and we have had really bad weather, so I have not seen any hatchlings yet and I usually see one or two. I will order them for next year.
