Ladybugs, pt. Deux

Last week we bought a box of ladybugs to rid our tree of lice/aphids. didn’t read the instructions (we were excited to release hundreds of ladybugs!!!) to NOT RELEASE THEM DURING THE DAY. Oops.

Most of them flew away immediately 🙁

So yesterday we bought TWO boxes, and followed instructions to release them at night (they supposedly don’t fly / migrate in the dark).

This morning we checked and most of them are still munching away at the aphid buffet.

Hopefully this time they stay until the lice problem is gone!
