Slowly, things are warming up, and with the micer weather, so the little creatures are comming back to life. Whilst doing some spring cleaning, I came across these ladybirds, hibernating in the corners of the windows in the spare room.
My message, is 'Leave them alone'. I say this as I did once hear one shopper in our local shop asking for fly killer for these lovely aphid eaters. I did explain that they were organic pest control, but some people don't like to be told what to do in thier own homes. She was a tad shocked when I told here how much ladybirds cost to buy as organic aphid control.
One of the others which like to over-winter inside our houses are Lacewings, if you see these, please leave in peace.
