Product Information

Please note: We cannot send to WA.

Your live insects are posted to you as  juveniles and not as the adult form. This is because the baby form eats the most of the bug you are trying to get rid of. Place a few on the under side of leaves spread out over your area where the problem occurs and the babies will do the hard work. They may choose to stay after they have gobbled up the baddies or they may choose to move to another area to feed. We underestimate just how much these bugs do need to eat each day!

Scale-eating ladybird

G’day my name is Luke, and I love to eat scale. Scale are like little mini pizzas to me and I enjoy an assortment of flavours like Red scale, Oriental scale, Oleander scale and White louse scale (citrus snow scale). Just like my sister I have baby brothers who also feed on scale and they look very different to me. In fact they look like little brown porcupines.

You will see them about 1 week after you release me into the garden. I am delivered to you in a small plastic container with 29 of my brothers  and we rapidly go to work finding scale to eat .

Tap one or two of us out of the plastic container very close to a scale infestation. My brothers and I we will feed on 20-40m2 of garden infested with scale.
