Full Description

Ladybirds are the best known beneficial insect and have a huge appetite for pests, so they can be used for clearing heavy infestations of pests i.e. aphids, scale and mealy bug in greenhouses / conservatories. Each ladybird larvae will eat thousands of pests each before turning into an adult ladybird and dispersing. At this point, the relavent bio-control can be introduced to give on-going pest control if needed :-

  • Introduce Aphidius to give on-going aphid control.
  • Introduce Phytoseiulus / Amblyseius Andersonii to give on-going red spider mite control. 
  • Introduce Cryptolaemus to give on-going mealybug control. 

Ladybird Larvae – Green Gardener only supplies British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds – we do NOT supply Harlequin ladybirds. As our Ladybird larvae are supplied as larvae, they are ideal for releasing directly onto plants heavily infected with pests – 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 onto your infected plants. Available from March to August each year in packs of 50 ready for release in the garden. 

N.B. If you have recently used a chemical spray i.e. within the last 2-3 weeks, please contact us (jon@greengardener.co.uk) to check how soon Ladybird Larvae can be introduced? Once the infestation is under control, the relevant natural predator can be introduced to give on-going control i.e. introduce Aphidius for on-going aphid control.

“I want to leave feedback for the ladybirds I received today for our granddaughter’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

    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 forward to them growing into ladybirds

    I ordered ladybird larvae to deal with a aphid infestation in my greenhouse. They arrived in perfect condition with great packaging and useful leaflets. Aphids all gone in about a week and no pesticides used! Brilliant service thank you!
