Ask us a question

Ladybird populations are declining in the UK. Both Ladybird adults and their Ladybird larvae are voracious eaters and can make a real difference to greenfly infestations both under glass and outside.

Adult Ladybirds lay up to 50 yellow Ladybird eggs per day under the leaves of plants and up to 1500 in their Ladybird lifetime to continue the cycle of natural pest control.

Aphids

Aphids tend to colonise shoot tips, flower buds and the underside of younger leaves. Signs of an aphid problem include a sticky residue on foliage, stems and fruits, which eventually results in the growth of black mould.
