    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.

Invite ladybugs into your garden by building a habitat, using a length of pipe and scrap wood.

Eco-Ladybug House- Ladybugs are great because they eat insect pests such as aphids and scale insects that can attack your plants. Ladybugs seek shelter during cold nights and also over the winter. Provide a house for them so they'll stay in your garden! Awesome!!!!

The Praying Mantis is the perfect garden companion. Unlike the lovely ladybug, Mantis do not fly away, but prefer to stay within their garden homes for life. They are the safest pest control, eating many more varieties of pests than their ladybug counterparts. Many nurseries supply this gentle workers.

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!
