The ladybug has been deemed “a fairy godmother for plants.” In their lifetime of about one year, a single ladybug can eat as many as 5,000 aphids — that’s almost 14 garden pests a day! Sadly, popular agricultural practices have contributed to the rapid decline in ladybug populations. This class is an opportunity to learn what steps to take to protect this vital component of our ecosystem. By taking our pledge, and showing ladybugs and other beneficial insects some love, you can make an impact.
