The Perfect Gift for the Gardener, Nature Lover and Every Child. Huh? What is it?
It's a Ladybug house! The perfect green gift for so many. The gardener loves having ladybugs in the garden to help control bugs that eat their plants and flowers. The Ladybugs feed on aphids and other soft bodied insects that feed on their plants. This process is an organic gardener's "ace in the hole" method of natural, pest control.
The nature lover enjoys caring for these beneficial insects and let's not forget about kids. From ladybugs, children of any age can learn about the cycle of life and caring for some of our earth's tiniest inhabitants. These little houses offer safe-havens and a place for the ladybugs to lay their eggs and go through metamorphosis.
As the days turn colder, ladybugs will be looking for a warm place to shield themselves from the wind. Now is one of the best times of the year to put out a ladybug house. Spray the inside of the ladybug house and the area around it with some sugar water to help attract these little beetles that are said to bring luck.
