Ladybugs

I found some aphids the other day on one of my pepper plants and then noticed a lone ladybug on another plant – so I moved it over to the pepper plant so it could have some lunch.  Well yesterday I was at the garden store and bought a bag of ladybugs: 2000 of them to be exact.  I opened them up last night in the garden to let them go to work.  This morning when I went out to the garden there were ladybugs EVERYWHERE!  Here are a couple of pictures.

    awesome!! it is so important to have those lady bugs! when i worked at the garden center we used to sell them. we kept only one or two out at a time so that people could see the “product” and we kept the rest in the flower cooler laying dormant! let us know if the aphids go away/don’t multiply!
