We have unfortunately picked up wooly aphids on one of our apple trees and wonder if we could use lady bugs for pest control? Does Burpee sell lady bugs?

Lady bugs love aphids! You can purchase lady bugs from the Burpee website: or toll-free at (800) 888-1447. Be sure to have an abundance of flowering plants in your garden to attract lady bugs (they like nectar, too), so they'll stick around and lay eggs. That way future generations of lady bugs will be standing by to take care of any aphids that show up.
