They were hard at work culling the aphid that were trying to set up shop on my roses.
Then when I looked a bit closer I noticed there were heaps of new workers, which could have something to do with the plentiful food supply.
I have made a concerted effort not to spray pesticides, have let things like coriander flower and go to seed and have planted lots of flowering plants to attract the good bugs.
Well it seems to be working because not only do we have ladybirds galore taking care of the aphids but they seem to to think the farm is a good place to raise a family. There is ladybird hanky panky going on in all directions.
