Ladybugs in the Garden

I received my order of Ladybugs from Growquest Growers.  I took some pictures of how I released them.  It was very easy, I just opened the bag a little and layed it on top of the trees.  They slowly start to crawl out.

These photos are from last year may 2009.  This is a Dorsett apple which is for hot climates but, it looks like it was too hot down here in south florida.  They eventually fell off.  Let’s see if we get any this year that make it through.
