Ladybugs Hippodamia convergens
Ladybugs are probably the most universally known beneficial insect. They are found nearly everywhere and are regarded by many gardeners and farmers as a sign of general well being in the insect complex. They are usually most successful at aphid control, but also eat mites, scales, mealybugs and a whole host of other soft-bodied insects. Ladybugs hibernate in the Winter months and also tend to go inactive during the hottest parts of the Summer.
