When bugs invade your property, the most logical next step would be to consult your local pest control company. At this apartment complex in the La Jolla, the property owners took matters in their own hands to remedy their bug problem.
The complex is made up of two complexes on a 30 acre lot that was suffering from an infestation of aphids and mites. These bugs were creating homes in the landscaping surrounding the buildings and ruining the greenery. The complex owners wanted a pest control solution that would be safe for the tenants and the environment but effective against the bugs.
The owners decided that releasing thousands of ladybugs onto the property would fit their want of a zero pesticides control method perfectly. The ladybugs prey on the aphids and mites to provide more of a balance between the “good” bugs and “bad” bugs with no chemicals involved and ultimately removing the bug problem. Tenants were told not to worry about the infestation of ladybugs in the area because this specie was not prone to entering homes.
The ladybugs were supplied by a company that buys the bugs from collectors in Oregon, California, and Montana and stores them in refrigerators at 35 degrees. At this temperature, the ladybugs will go dormant and can stay alive for five months by eating their stored fat. In transit to the complex, the bugs warmed up and had an appetite to prey on the aphid, mites, and other bugs that weren’t too quick to catch.
