Bamboo Ladybug Feeder

Aphids are the most common garden pest and are difficult to control by spraying. Luckily, one ladybug can eat dozens of aphids a day, seeking them out wherever they hide. Ladybugs also prey on mealybugs, scale, leaf hoppers and mites. Bait these natural bamboo feeding stations with a raisin or two to welcome ladybugs into your garden and provide food when aphids are scarce.

A few days after setting up the ladybug feeder, I saw a ladybug snacking on a raisin. A few more days later, I took a peek inside and saw that the ladybug decided to lay her eggs in there! The eggs look like they are getting ready to "hatch". I'm looking forward to seeing if the little ones stick around.
