Import your very own anti-aphid (and other soft bodied insects and mite) army. Ladybugs feast on both the adult and larval stages of many common garden pests. Increase your population of this favorite organic control. Use 1/2 to 3 gallons of ladybugs per acre every year. Release them when pests first appear. They can be stored at 40 ° until they are needed. They may not be available periodically March through May. You cannot release too many.

Price INCLUDES delivery. Ships via FedEx Overnight to a street address only (no Post Office box).Insects are sent out Monday - Wednesday. Place your order at least 3 business days in advance of desired shipping date (Monday holidays will delay processing of order). Unless you specify otherwise, we will send your Beneficial Insects on the next possible shipping day. You could also request delayed delivery in the Order-Specific Comments box. We can only accept ship dates up to three weeks out.
These creatures will die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather. We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. Be sure to open your box when you receive your order to prevent these beneficials from suffocating. If they arrive hot, mist them, let the bags dry, and then put them in the fridge. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem. Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If FedEx is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.
