My lady beetles arrived on a hot June day and sat in the mailbox until I could retrieve them. By the time I put them out at 7 pm that evening, about half of them were dead. Out of the remaining half, about 1/2 flew away, leaving me with a bare 1/4 of the ordered amount. The next day, I found a few lady beetles. Five days later, I can't find any. I can only hope that they and their supposed larvae are merely invisible and working their magic.
Love these Lady Bugs!
early this spring I noticed my garden, especially my roses, had been massively invaded with aphids! When your lady bugs arrived I followed all directions and sprinkled them out in the garden in the evening. now, four days later, there are lady bugs everywhere! the aphid population is way down! I have ordered lady bugs before from other places, and a day after letting them go, you could not find a lady bug anywhere. I am so impressed with your bugs!!!! yes, quite a few were dead when they arrived, but you sent a lot and most have stayed!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!!
saved my plant
I have a big many-years-old gynura (purple passion houseplant) that is just gorgeous. It somehow became infested with aphids INSIDE my house. Yuck! After trying everything I could find short of using a systemic insecticide, I ordered the ladybugs. It was hot the day they came in the mail so there were quite a few dead ones. They stayed inside on the plant where I put them and cured the aphid problem. I might be crazy, but it worked!
Very trustworthy purchase
I have ordered lady bugs from Gurneys for two years now. They are indeed as they are advertised... stay at home. I have an extensive Rose Garden and many Honeysuckle vines and bushes. Essentially, I have a hummingbird and butterfly type garden, so aphids can be a real problem. These lady bugs wipe out infestations in a matter of 7 days. Very impressive. I see a numerous amount of Lady bug Larvae on all the plants from the Lady Bugs I ordered last year from Gurneys. You can never have enough Lady Bugs when you live in the outskirts of the city. Rural areas naturally have a lot of Lady bugs because of all the trees or woods. Also, if any of the bags of Lady bugs comes to your home mostly dead, Gurneys is absolutely great about replacing them free of charge. It is very comforting to have a company that doesn't give you any problems. I rate an online garden provider by the quality of the product and customer service... Gurneys rates as an A+ and I would highly recommend Gurneys.com to anyone looking to purchase these Lady bugs. Very trustworthy company. Top notch product!
These are great for the garden. I garden in an enclosed patio so they stay at home better. Compared to other places I have purchased them from, I get many less dead ladybugs from Gurneys and they seem to live longer. They may cost a bit more, but worth the money.
