Ladybirds are the best known beneficial insect and a welcome sight in the garden, where they happily munch away on greenfly and other tasty pests. By releasing ladybirds in your garden you can boost their numbers, which will lead to a permanent decrease in the number of pests in your garden i.e. aphids. Each ladybird will eat about 5000 aphids and will soon produce ladybird larvae which in turn also eat aphids. Adult Ladybirds are available between April and August each year. Finished for this year - available again in May 2019.
