    Tonight the Ladies Will Have their Way

    5 weeks to go Need an Escort is needed to Harvest when growing plants out Doors. I have two forced flower plants I hope to finish soon so I don’t need no surprises in late August.
    500 lady bugs 200 lacewings larvae ( lacewing larvae are badass! ) eat every soft belly in its path.
    Tonight in my force tent I am going to release just half the lady bugs and the other half tomorrow or the next. The lacewings I will dumping right away all on both plants as evenly as I can after lightly misting leaf so eggs can stick. It’s takes two days for lacewing larvae to emerge and when they do HUNGRY as &$#@ and Ugly.

    Releasing lady bugs is ok for the short term. Making a home for them to breed in is better for long term.

      Yes. Water contained in a sponge for drinking and water soaked raisins for food. 👍

    What type of pests are you treating? I've never even considered raising my own ladybugs before. What a great idea. I have a worm compost bin so maybe I should try my hand at that.

      Last winter I had a dozen or so ladybugs find their way to my indoor grow and live in my tent for a while. They slept between the bars and tent shell mostly.

        Just preventive down the stretch until harvest ... killing off any softbelly insect ... is why I use them you shouldn’t spray ..some know what they are doing when it comes to spraying I don’t so I use bugs.

          Way to go 420chicano i was just at co-op today picking up more soil ingredients to mix up for indoors this winter and i saw them little lady bugs again almost picked them up i wanted to just set them free i know it's hotter than an oven for them in the cup. Was it you who posted that skinny green thinner than pencil lead worm? i caught one chopping away like and sucking the leaf i believe. First time i saw one this year i pick that off fed it to the soil. I'm checking them all and it was only on 1 plant. I've got lots of lady bugs around right now.

        Lady bugs are a Great ... but what I bought what is a combo pack of 500 ladybugs 1000 lacewing eggs the lacewing is what I’m after once they hatch they are ferocious the ladybugs first will eat and leave the lacewing will stay around and occupy and eat

        lacewing eggs or lacewing Larvae ...larvae are the best they are just eating eating machines and they won’t eat your plants they will become adults and fly off or maybe lay some eggs their eggs are on little silk strands hi nice to see
