The Awakening of the Cannibal

My favorite pest controller has awoken from her winter hibernation. She’s a little cannibal beetle who will devour those tasty parasites who will otherwise invade & wreck my edible greens.

Welcome back my sweet little Ladybug!

Nice & comfortably tucked in.


and there she laid her Eggs by my little fruiting Eggplant.

Nice aphid afternoon snack … yumyum!


The 1st Ladybug for 2014 is in!! Image

And she has laid many golden eggs which hopefully will hatch & be my pest-control assistants. Image

Yes, I practiced self-control, refrained from squeezing & killing those darn aphids, so now I hope these little Ladybugs-to-be will hurry up, pop out and eat them all up for me.
