We have just received word from our supplier that we will not be receiving any summer ladybugs this year.
This is a shock to us, as this is the first time this has happened in Bobs experience with ladybugs, which goes back to 1992. Commercial ladybugs come from California, and are collected from migrating swarms that escape the summer heat in the valley to the much cooler foothills nearby. We have had a “perfect storm” created by the combination of a prolonged drought (which is not that unusual) with the wildfires that made the news this past fall, which likely destroyed many of these hibernation sites.
