|I have just purchased lady bugs for my garden. My question is this, How long can I keep them in the package they come in before releasing them? I may have bought them too early and do not want them to die before I need them.

|Ladybugs can be kept for a week or two in a cool location (about 40 degrees). However, ladybugs are usually shipped at the proper time for release. If you have questions about the shipment timing, please contact Burpee directly. The Customer Service number is 1-800-333-5808.
