The garden I worked in today was teaming with blackfly AND ladybirds image So many and not a harlequin in sight. So happy they have finally put in an appearance. Anyone else noticed they've turned up?



  • My garden is teaming with them as we'll.... There was a thread last week saying they hadn't seen any in ages

  • I am in Suffolk and so far have not seen any ladybirds.  Lots of bees, butterflies, and other insects but no ladybirds.  Send a few my way please image

    I'm very close to you, addict, and have not seen any this year.  Plenty of bees and butterflies, but not a single LBimage
