Aphids attacking trees can be a  BIG problem (the 1st visible symptom of attack is large amounts of sticky honeydew which drips down on to your car, your garden furniture or your patio) - control aphids naturally by introducing native British Ladybird Larvae with release bags into the trees. Green Gardener only supplies British Adalia bipunctata ladybird larvae - we do NOT supply Harlequin ladybirds. The ladybirds are sent by 1st class post with food included and each 100 larvae is suppied with a release bag i.e. order 500 larvae and you will receive 5 x release bags. Ladybird larvae eat over 100 aphids a day each, so by introducing ladybird larvae into trees / hedges aphids can be controlled naturallyBeing mobile, the larvae will quickly spread out into the canopy to search out and devour aphids & introducing the larvae is easy with our cotton release bags. Available between April and September. Finished for this year - available again in 2020.

Description

Details

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 (available as 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. Each ladybird will eat about 5000 aphids and will soon produce ladybird larvae which in turn also eat aphids. Ladybirds are available between late March and September. Finished for this year - available again in 2020.

Ladybird Larvae in Bags for controlling aphids in conifers, trees and hedges - Aphids (Greenfly and blackfly) attacking trees is BIG problem - the first visible symptom of attack is large amounts of sticky honeydew (produced by the aphids as they suck sap from the tree), which drips down on to lower branches, your car, your garden furniture or your patio! Conifers often develop unsightly brown patches and the R.H.S. confirms that Cypress Aphid (a type of Greenfly) is the cause in over half the cases. Spraying chemicals into large plants and trees is just not practical and harms beneficial insects such as ladybirds, so release Ladybird Larvae instead. 

Ladybird Larvae in Bags for controlling aphids in conifers, trees and hedges - We supply native British Adalia bipunctata ladybird larvae with release bags ready for release into your trees. Green Gardener only supplies native British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds - we do NOT supply Harlequin ladybirds. Ladybird larvae are predators of aphids, able to eat over 100 aphids a day each, so by introducing ladybird larvae into the trees / hedges, the aphids can be controlled naturallyBeing mobile, the larvae will quickly spread out into the canopy to search out and devour aphids - they arrive very hungry and will quickly hunt out aphids wherever they are hiding. Introducing the larvae is easy with our quick release system of 100 larvae with a cotton release bag - place the larvae in the bag, hang it up and the larvae will crawl out to search for greenfly. How many do I need? This depends on the truck diameter :-

  1. Less than 20cm, use 100 larvae and 1 release bag.
  2. Between 20cm and 50cm, use 200 larvae split between 2 release bags.
  3. Over 50cm, use 500 larvae split between 3 release bags.
  4. For hedges introduce 10 larvae per m run of hedge and use 1 bag per 100 larvae.

Ladybird Larvae
I tried the ladybird larvae because my indoor chilli plants keep getting infested with aphids. I had a few questions before buying so called and was advised to use the larvae rather than the adults. (very informative lady on the phone was extremely helpful) The larvae have eaten most of the aphids now and are turning to adult stage so very happy with them so far and hoping they will stick around, in fact I even got the ladybird barn to keep them safe throughout the winter). Excellent and I highly recommend. ????

Ladybird Larvae
Ladybirds arrived promptly and all alive. Managed the aphid population very quickly. Ladybird barn proving a big hit as well. Have since spotted larvae amongst the vegetation. Big success in dealing with Aphid population without pesticides or chemicals. Will certainly be visiting site again regularly.

I had a real problem with greenfly on a new plant. I thought i'd try the ladybird larvae and the results have been incredible! Nearly all the greenfly are gone and the plant is growing fast now.

I am extremely happy with the Ladybird Larvae
I am e-mailing to say how extremely happy I am with the Ladybird Larvae that I ordered from you. This is my first time using them and they have nearly completely destroyed the aphids population that was damaging my apple tree within just a week. I will be ordering again from you in the future to control aphids naturally.

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

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