Question: I'm interested in purchasing ladybuds to control an infestation of aphids. Would you know how/from whom I could make such a purchase?

Answer: Ladybugs can be purchased from Burpee. They sell them in 1/2 pt. or 1 qt. containers. 1/2 pt. is $12.95 each, two for $19.95. 1 qt. is $29.95. You can reach Burpee mail order at 1-800-888-1447 or visit their website at Be sure to make your area receptive to the ladybugs so they will stick around.
