I don't have ladybugs, but I sprayed my roses with a strong jets of water a few times and they moved on. Good luck. -Ais.

I wanted ladybugs too so I built some houses for them

I put some fresh dill in there and they are showing up in force now :)

I made three of them

I may make some more and and sell them if I get enough orders :)

Termater, those houses are TOO CUTE! I didn't know you could attract them that way. I almost never spray for bugs because I hate to use chemicals and although some things get chomped I usually find that the garden balances itself out. So when the aphids show up the ladybugs are usually not far behind. Housing them to attract more certainly couldn't hurt! -Ais.

Hi Termater!
Will you make more? Very cute, especially if it works! I have a few ladybugs, but would love to give them a home and attract more. How much :-)
and will you bring them to the fall raleigh plant swap (if you are coming)? (someone bring some dill too (smile))
