Operation Ladybug Release

April 4th, 2015 at 06:46 pm

Every fall, ladybugs crawl through my bathroom window and lay their eggs. For whatever reason, the eggs this year hatched way too early, in February, and I've been co-existing with a dozen or so ladybugs in the sunny bathroom for weeks.

They eventually expire, but I didn't have the heart to brush them outside while temps were dipping below freezing at night.

I've check the extended weather forecast and it seems there are no freezing temps in the near future, so I've been catch and releasing them all to the wild blue yonder.

I doubt their favorite food, aphids, are out and about now, but at least they'll enjoy their freedom in the Great Outdoors, where they belong.

This is absolutely not money-related.

    We always get a lot of lady bugs in our house too... they are supposed to be great for the garden though, so last year we bought a few containers to release. I never saw another lady bug out there again! What a waste of money!

    They will only stick around if they have something to eat, aphids, mainly. They go where the food source is.
