Ladybird Larvae x50

Ladybird Larvae have a huge appetite for soft-bodied pests such as aphids, so release ladybird larvae onto your pest infected plants to clear pest problems. We supply native British Ladybird Larvae in packs of 50 with food included ready for release in your garden or for use under-glass. Green Gardener only supplies British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds - we do NOT supply Harlequin ladybirds. The ladybirds are sent by 1st class post with food included. Available from May to August each year in packs of 50 ready for release in the garden. Finished for this year - available again in May 2019.



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 (adults and / or larvae) 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. Ladybird Larvae can also be used for clearing heavy infestations of aphids in greenhouses / conservatories. Each ladybird will eat about 5000 aphids and will soon produce ladybird larvae which in turn also eat aphids. Ladybirds are available between late April and August. Finished for this year - available again in May 2019.

Ladybird Larvae - Each ladybird larvae will eat a large number of pests before pupating and emerging as a ladybird ready to breed and produce the next generation of ladybirds. As they are supplied as larvae, they are ideal for releasing directly onto plants heavily infected with aphids - as they they are unable to fly and will stay where you put them. Supplied in trays of approximately 50, they are sent by 1st class post ready for release directly into your garden / greenhouse or conservatory. N.B. Ladybird Larvae are available between late April and August each year, so they have finished for this year - available again in May 2019.

"I want to leave feedback for the ladybirds I received today for our granddaughter's greenhouse. (But I cannot find a link to) We are over the moon with them they were very healthy and are eating the pests quickly. We have put a couple of ladybird houses in there so that when it gets warm enough we can move some onto our outside plants. Thank you so much I will definitely be repeating this exercise next year." Jill and Indi (Aberdeen) by email

Ladybird Larvae
Great service at a good price

I have used Green Gardener products for a number of years. They supply a number of natural pest control options and I have tried several of them.

I have used nemaslug successfully for several years, also vine weevil control for adults and grubs. I have also tried encarsia in the greenhouse, adult ladybirds, larvae and lacewing larvae to control greenfly. All products that have worked well and benefitted the garden.

They provide a good and reliable service, particularly the two part delivery which ensures that you treat at the right time

Ladybird Larvae
I bought the ladybird larvae for use on nasturtiums and great water dock plant by my pond which were covered in aphids. I haven’t seen any ladybirds in years so wanted to help them make a comeback in my garden. I received a large amount of larvae and they have grown well even the larvae eat aphids I look foward to them growing into ladybirds

Ladybird Larvae
Ladybirds and larvae arrived quickly and were soon munching away on the black flies that had started to appear all over my beans.

Ladybird Larvae
This year I had an early infestation of blackfly on my runner beans. The ladybird larvae were very effective and soon cleaned up the plants. Now I have an excellent crop of beans. A few years ago I had a similar problem and the ladybirds again worked their magic. This method certainly works. I have also had success with the lacewing larvae.
