Are indoor ladybugs any good at getting rid of aphids on houseplants in homes? Mike McGrath, host of You Bet Your Garden, will discuss whether this Asian invader is a real lady or just a bad bug. Plus your fabulous phone calls.
Question of the Week:
“I don’t yet have a garden. I do have about 30 houseplants, plus herbs and some experiments that are going fairly well. Thinking I had an easy solution to an aphid problem, I took some (ladybugs) inside and put them on my plants. Then it hit me that I should probably have checked first to see if lady bugs are dangerous to humans, homes and so on.”
