Full Description

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 April and August. Finished for this year – available again in April 2022.

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. We also include 5 small paper release bags to make releasing your ladybirds as easy as possible – simply tip 10 larvae in each bags and position on the plants.

“I want to leave feedback for the ladybirds I received today for our grand-daughter’s greenhouse. 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

    Thank you, absolutely brilliant service and a bargain, they are busily munching away just 3 days after I ordered.

      Thanks for the comments and I am glad you are pl;eased. We would love to see some pictures of the ladybird as they munch on pests or use the houses? Kind regards Jon @ Green Gardener

    The ladybirds arrived very quickly but they were dead on arrival. I won’t be using this company again.

      Thanks for the message and sorry for the dead ladybirds. They normally travel really well so I suspect they were delayed in the post. If you can let us have the order number / delivery address we can trace the order and check. We can then arrange replacements or a refund. Kind regards Jon @ Green Gardener

    Arrived the following day well packaged but after distributing the 100 ladybug larvae in the paper bags around the garden in greenfly infested rose bushes I have not seen the results that previous reviewers are claiming. Only 2 ladybugs spotted so far on day five and greenfly still in abundance!

    • Jon

      Thanks for the review and it is still early days i.e. they were only released 5 days ago. It is totally normal for the ladybirds to disperse once you have released them and we want them to get on with feeding and breeding and normally you struggle to see them but monitor the pests. It takes 3 weeks for the next generation of ladybirds to appear. Aphids are fast breeders, so it will take a while for you to see a difference i.e. the aphids will breed faster than the ladybirds can eat them but as they breed they will catch up and take over. Kind regards Jon @ Green Gardener

    I am absolutely thrilled with this product. We had a dreadful blackfly infestation on our hibiscus plant, so bad the stems looked black. I brought the larvae two weeks ago and hung the bag provided onto our plant. I was sceptical they would be able to tackle such a big infestation. Be patient! Not much happened in the first few days but then I began to notice some of the stems had been cleared. I still thought I hadn’t brought enough to clear all of them but two weeks on 90% of the blackfly has gone. I’m even able to spot the larvae now. I am astounded at how successful it’s been. I’m also very happy that the awful pesticide I was using can be banished forever. Looking forward to watching them change into ladybirds. A brilliant product well packaged and delivered promptly. A very happy customer thank you.

    The larvae we ordered arrived promptly and my toddler and I had great fun watching them grow. However, it is now very clear that these are Harlequin ladybirds NOT native UK species despite what is said here!!!

    • Jon

      Thanks for the message and I am glad your toddler has enjoyed them. I can assure you we only sell NATIVE Adalia Bipuctata (the 2 spot) ladybirds and we do NOT Include any Harlequin ladybirds. If any of your ladybirds are black with red spots then they are NATIVE Adalia Bipuctata, but they are the melanic 2 spot ladybird – they are black and despite its 2 spot name, it normally has four or six red spots. Kind regards Jon @ Green Gardener

    Wonderful. Larvae arrived quickly and in perfect condition two weeks ago. Now growing nicely and making a big difference to the aphid problem on our plum tree. Very happy. Many thanks.
