Question by : Are ladybugs beneficial for just an average herb/vegetable garden? If I release a bunch outdoors will stay?
Just wondering if it will be beneficial to release a bunch of ladybugs in my outdoor garden. Got the idea after saw some horn worms on tomato plants and read lady bugs are their predator.
But will the lady bugs stay in the garden or just fly away?
Answer by Michael O’Loughlin
Ladybugs or ladybird beetles are very beneficial to release into your garden. One trick to keep them in your yard, is to lightly mist them in the container before releasing them. Let them take a good drink. Many times they will simply fly away looking for moisture if you do not.
