Customer Question – Adult or Ladybird Larvae?
Q. “Hello is it still ok to release ladybird larvae or should I buy adult ladybirds?” from Janice.
A. Thanks for the question and you can release both at this time of year as there is plenty of time for the larvae to pupate. If you have an aphid problem you want to control then we recommend the larvae as they will stay where you put them i.e. they will not fly off, but if you are just trying to boost ladybird numbers then the adults are better as they can spread out in search of food.
