The easy way to encourage Ladybirds into your garden and Ladybird Tower.
Ladybirds are beneficial garden predators and eat a wide variety of pest species like aphids, scale insects, mealy bugs etc. By increasing the number of ladybirds in your garden, you can reduce the number of chemicals used as the ladybirds will control these pests in a natural and environmentally friendly way. It is estimated that one ladybird may eat over 4000 aphids in its life!
The attractant is designed to encourage the ladybird into your ladybird tower, bug box or insect hotel so they will over-winter there. It is most effective in Autumn. Mix a little food with a drop of water in a small dish to form a paste and apply to ladybird tower entrance holes or the face of the overwintering tubes.
Food sachets should be kept cool and dry and, once opened, will last for up to 4 months.
