Occasionally we have extra larvae that grow all the way up in our lab and become available for sale as adult Coccinella novemnotata (ninespotted) ladybugs. Eastern C. novemnotata are selected from a colony that originated with ladybugs collected on Long Island, New York, and will be sold only to residents of northeastern states. Adult ladybugs continue to gobble aphids and small garden pests and won't fly far away unless they run out of food! Adults are perfect for release in educational settings, on their own or in combination with larvae, where participants will especially enjoy getting to know the ladybugs they will be scouting for in the future.

This fall (2017) we have enough adults that these can be purchased with restoration goals in mind. We will start getting these adults ready for overwintering. If you have aphids and pollen for them to eat while they get more used to the outdoors, they should be able to overwinter and come out in the spring of 2018! For reintroduction we recommend a minimum of 10 -20 adults should be released. Educational groups can still add just a few adults to orders of larvae.

Please order live ladybugs ahead of time - at least before noon on the day before you with them to arrive!
