About Me Professional
We released the ladybugs into our working greenhouse to help reduce whiteflies (no aphids this year).They are easy to deal with, no biting. Not expensive, and shipping was only a couple days.Even though there are still a lot around, they still get out through small cracks, etc, so many are released to the wild, but it doesn't appear to hurt anything, and we do not have outdoor insect pest issues.
Easy to release and fun
from Southern NH
It was not as big of a deal as I thought to buy and release these. I'll do it again later in the season, because I am not sure if it worked. Although, I haven't seen any spider mites lately so it could have. Will try this again earlier in the season.
Ladybugs are better than pesticide.
from Princeton, Kansas
I spread them around my zucchini, pumpkin and squash plants a couple of months ago. I don't have any aphids or other bugs that eat my garden plants. Rarely see them but they are doing a great job. Easier to use than pesticide and don't have to be reapplied every week.
Safe pest control

My kids squeal with delight when they get a handful to release into the back yard.

I love praying mantis. Great watching them hatch. They really help with garden pests.
from Cleveland, OH
Received 3 egg cases in plastic bag & put on windowsill, pretty much forgot about it, and within 3 weeks or so, saw a lot of activity as tiny praying mantis were scrambling about! It's true that the egg cases look undisturbed, have no idea of actual size when they first emerge. So, if they are put outside immediately in a safe spot as directions say, seeing the tiny mantis may be quite difficult. Keep checking the garden to see if we can spot them & check their size now!
