What can you do to stop a bunch of soft-bodied, leaf eating bugs that are munching their way through your bushes and shrubs? While one answer might be to treat them to some chemical pesticides, another might be to call in a winged crusader to save the day – namely a ladybug. Yes, believe it or not, a firm called Planet Natural now offers consumers the option of purchasing ladybugs to counter pest infestations, and the results have been remarkable. Typically, one ladybug can patrol a 19-inch square area eating up to 50 pests in a single day. The cost for 2,000 ladybugs is only around $18, and since they’re avid little procreators, the ladybug pest control option also can wind up being a long-term solution to a short-term menace.
