- each holds hundreds of ladybugs -

Ladybugs are very much our garden helpers. They eat many small pests (such as aphids) that just love to infect and kill our plants. Nowadays, it’s even possible to buy ladybugs by the gallon in order to protect your precious garden and plants.

If you’ve ever picked up a ladybug, you might notice a weird “ladybug smell” This pungent odor is released from the ladybug’s legs, and its purpose is to warn predators that ladybugs do not taste good.  They come in a variety of colors, color patterns, and sizes ...... all of which they use to defend themselves.   Ladybugs are truly masters of defense.     

However, there is one element that is very dangerous to the ladybug and that’s Mother Nature. Ladybugs are always looking for places to hide and escape from the weather....especially winter. Ladybugs like to huddle together in clumps and many usually find their way into homes where they feel safe.  Some people think they huddle to share each others body heat, while others believe it is to give off a stronger smell as a large group. Whichever the reason (probably both), ladybugs can invade our homes in their effort to survive. That is why it is a good idea to provide them with their own house - A LADYBUG HOUSE.   Once they find it, they'll clump together inside and release their "ladybug smell".  This will attract more ladybugs while keeping predators away.  They are truly a marvel of nature!

SPECIAL FEATURES include:  A cedar house with removable roof.  Entrance slits at the base and an inner compartment system that allow ladybugs to cluster.  MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH EACH HOUSE.

OPTIONAL FEATURES:  When selecting an option below, simply check-mark the option and then type "yes" or "y" or "1" in the drop down box.  The option & amount will be added.  You can add/remove options as you wish.

CEDAR SEAL: For an extra $5, we will be happy to seal the entire house with a high quality sealant called CWF by Flood.  Cedar is one of the best woods to use for outdoor items. It is a wood that can expand and contract with warm and cold weather. After a period of time, cedar will begin to lighten to a beautiful silvery gray. However, if you want to keep cedar looking its TAN color longer, then a sealant is recommended.  We use a product called CLEAR WOOD FINISH. It is low odor, water soluble, and penetrates deep into the pours of the cedar thus creating a clear coat of protection and preserving the cedar's tan color.  It is safe, odorless, and non toxic.  We feel it is the best sealant on the market.
