I prefer the larvae over the adults.. They are far more voracious and don't divide their focus. I was hoping to switch to Convergent Hippodamia, but the cold moved in too fast and I lost the idea in the rush. If I manage to collect some when the weather warms up, I'm going to have to isolate them until I can get around to collecting this new spawn. Might just skip it for this year.. Harmonia are really great to work with, and they seem to appreciate the winter oasis.That's just their way of calling in (making) reinforcements to attack those aphids, lol..
I agree, that Aji Bird is a looker. You should jump on the seed train and throw a few of these on!
They can be little devils. I spent a hellish day with them one fall, while trying to install brakes/lines on a car. Hundreds of them flying around, and I was sweating.. I understand them better now. If you give them a little honey, spritz of water, they usually calm down.Those yellow beetles bite I just found that out recently
