Ladybugs are a great way to control aphids and other pests without spraying chemicals...and they are completely adorable. We purchased this bag of 1,500 ladybugs from the Gowanus Nursery, or you can buy them at Bio Logic . An adult ladybug can eat 5,000 aphids, then lay up to 1,500 tiny yellow eggs. Just sprinkle a few on each plant and watch them go to work.
