Ladybird Beetle Rearing

In a natural situation, ladybird beetles eat aphids. If you have a plant covered with aphids, place the beetles on the plant. Enclosing the plant in a screened box or making a sleeve to cover the branch will prevent the beetles from flying away. Aphids may be difficult to obtain. The beetles will survive for a couple days with honey water in cotton.
