Use these bamboo Ladybird Feeders and Food to attract and keep ladybirds in your garden. Supplied as a pack of 2 with a sachet of food, simply mix the powdered food with a drop of water to form a paste and smear on the inside of the feeders. Thread each feeder with the cord provided and then suspend approx 1m above the ground in areas where ladybird hibernate i.e. next to low conifers and ivy clad walls / fences. Perfect for offering food to hungry ladybirds emerging from hibernation or for offering food later in the year when food is becoming scarce. Add more food as needed or it is a good idea to clean the feeders out and add fresh food every 3-4 weeks. These Ladybird Feeders are supplied in a TWIN PACK with a sachet of food. N.B. Extra Ladybird Food is available all year round.

THis is a brilliant company to buy garden products from. I couldn't believe how efficient the ladybirds were. I release them on my beans with blackfly, thought first of all that they were a bit slow ( unfortunately a lot of gardeners expect instant results) but they started breeding, laying eggs and turning into larva and then suddenly they just multiply and no matter how may aphids arrived ( sprays are too short lived) they sucked the beans dry of them and I had the best crop ever. I will certainly buy more of them if they fail to over winter although I now have little homes for them all around the garden so Im hoping they will survive. Other things ive bought have been great as well as I dont want anything in my garden that will poison the frogs or other insects. Unfortunately a lot of people still use pesticides and it kills all insect even the useful ones and spoils the food chain.
