Ladybugs are everywhere in my garden this year. Don’t normally have trouble with keeping them in the garden but there are many who wish to see these dazzling ruby bugs in the garden. Why? Ladybugs are very helpful at getting rid of other pests such as aphids, mites and scale. If you have a vegetable garden you really want these pests out of the way, so attracting ladybugs is a must.
An easy way to get ladybugs into the garden is with plants itself- Ladybugs love cilantro, bug after my own heart can’t live without cilantro! They are really attracted to this plant so places a few through the garden can help keep the bugs within your yard.
Other plants the Ladybugs love are :
- Sweet Alyssum
- Dandelion– Please do not call this a weed! Remember my other posts about these amazing flowers!
- Wild Mustard
