Where can I purchase Ladybugs (Hippodamia Convergens) in the Central/South Jersey area?

I bought mine on ebay. 1500 LB's for $12.99 plus s&h. They arrived alive, stored well in the fridge and they were all there! ;)

My Gold Flame honeysuckle was infested with aphids this spring. The Lb's ate, laid eggs and I have new ones.

I couldn't find any locally so I ordered mine from gardens Alive. They arrived quickly and were all red, no asians in the entire batch. Though I have yet to see any eggs.

I ordered online through Ebay of places due to high shipping fees. They arrived promptly, all red as well.

They took care of the aphids that were all over several rosebushes, but one month later and I see no ladybugs in my yard. I ordered 1,500 BTW. They were here for a few weeks, then nothing; but aphids seem gone.
