Lady Bugs aren't just Ladies....

Here are two lady bugs going at it. We released hundreds of lady bugs two weeks ago to save our peach tree from an aphid attack. The instructions on the jar of bugs said if the bugs are happy you'll know it and they'll make your yard their home. Sure enough, I spied some happiness and caught it on camera. And there weren't just two of them in action. Any who...lady bugs can eat up to 50 aphids a day so they are a bonus bug for your garden.
