Is there anywhere that I can purchase ladybugs or is it too late in the season?

I live in Plano

Have you called Shades of Green? Ladybugs are not out of season anytime, except in winter when they hibernate in the utility rooms of fortunate people. <g>

My husband purchased lady bugs at Wells Bros. in Plano. It has been about 6 weeks so I would call and see if they still have them.

BIOFAC of Mathis, Tx is a wonderful source of all types of beneficials. You can order individual species of specific insects or you can buy a Biopac, which is a collection of llive adybugs, tricogramma eggs, lacewings larvae, and praying mantis eggs. The entire collection is $24.95, including shipping. I have bought one Biopac a month in early spring for the first two years at a new location and my beneficials naturalized so I didn't have to buy any more. I've had wonderful luck with them.

You can find them on the web at BIOFAC.com or call (800) 233-4914

This year I had no luck finding them here in Dallas. Home Depot used to have them. So I ordered them online at www.gardeners.com they came in 3 days.
