    a Lady Bug feeder.. i totally need one to invite lady bugs to my yard!++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.

I wouldn't pay retail for one of these as it's pretty simple to DIY - but a ladybug "feeder" is a must for a gardener who prefers a natural way to get rid of aphids, mites, and most other insect pests to the garden. If there's not enough aphids/mites/etc., for them to prey on, keep some raisins in here or a lady bug attractant to have these voracious pest-eaters around always.

Ladybugs are incredible partners in the garden. They are known as beneficial pests due to the fact that they do not harm the garden but do kill and eat the pests that do!
