Successful generations on Long Island 2017
Exciting evidence that ninespotted ladybug larvae released on Long Island in June 2017 are doing well.
This story will grow in the near future. But for right now we wanted to share this excellent picture of some C. novemnotata pupae found in Valley Stream, NY on July 22, 2017 after larvae were released on June 14, 2017. With 5 weeks between larval release and the finding of these pupae, they must be the next generation! Sweet! Many thanks to Daniel Mayberger for sharing this picture and this great news!
