Ladybugs Natural Predator of Aphids and Thrips - Integrated Pest Management - Geothermal Greenhouse
Using ladybugs for pest control in indoor farms
Ladybugs, or Lady Bird Beetles, are one of the most common beneficial insects used in gardens and farms, and the biocontrol that we use most often on our own farm.
Ladybugs are a natural predator of pests like aphids and thrips. We use them liberally for aphid control. Both the adults and the larvae find and devour aphids, but the adults don’t have a very big appetite, so growers need to use more adults to achieve the same level of control as they would if using larvae.
Where can you find ladybugs?
Ladybugs come (usually as adults) by the hundred or thousand, typically packed with some packing straw in a linen bag.
We order our ladybugs from Hydro-gardens, though many companies sell the insects.
Easiest way is Ebay.
We prefer getting them from sellers like Hydro-gardens because they raise the insects in bulk, and the buyer can be sure that he (or she) is getting them fresh.
There are several thousand different species of ladybug, and not all of them share an appetite. Some even eat plants rather than other plant-eating insects, so by ordering from a reliable source, you’ll be sure to get the right species. https://university.upstartfarm....ers.com/blog/ladybug
