    DORMANCY
    & RELEASE

    Instructions
    • Keep the ladybugs refrigerated to keep them dormant.
    • For outdoor release (in the evening), first water the foliage of infested plants and sprinkle a few ladybugs on the soil beneath the plants. Do not release when the sun is shining.
    • Release some ladybugs every day or two over a one week period, always where they have foliage for cover and food.

    INFO

    How do ladybugs help your garden?
    • Ladybugs are active mostly at night, feeding and laying eggs that will hatch in a week.
    • Black larvae with red dots have no wings, so they will complete the control by feeding for 3-4 weeks.
    • Biological control is reaching a balance of enough good bugs to keep the pest bugs from doing damage. Watch your pests disappear!
