I thought so! I received my kit in the mail on Saturday. It came really quick! I will be collecting my Aphids later today. I am going to add a Lady Bug box to my garden in hopes of getting some to over winter at my house. I haven't seen aphids here but haven't looked with a magnifying glass or just Really Looked. I am collecting them from my Step Daughter's house. I know they will stay if they have shelter and food.

If I want to find aphids, all I have to do is bring a plant indoors! I never see them outside, but as soon as I bring in plants to over-winter, there they are. I wonder how long the study is supposed to run?

Oh, looks like they have found enough volunteers for aphid collecting for this year.
