Answer #1 · Chason Arthur's Answer · Yeah...lady bugs definitely like to eat aphids. You can look around on the Internet for companies that supply lady bugs and other beneficial insects. But I think the best method for season long control of pests using beneficial insects is to plant flowers and other plants that will naturally attract these pests to your property. There's a lot of information on this website on the subject.)

Answer #2 · Dave Hunter's Answer · You also can buy beneficial bees to help pollinate your fruit/nut trees. You'll find many great websites that carry appropriate bees for your region. If you live east of the Rockies, ensure that you're getting eastern mason bees.)
