MightyBug – Ladybird adults contain the natural predator the two-spotted ladybird (Adalia bipunctata) which hunts and eats aphids.

Ladybirds are the most well know beneficial insect and friend to the gardener. Easy to identify red bodies and black spots they and veracious hunters of aphids (greenfly and blackfly) and be used to control pest outbreaks. Ladybirds will eat a wide range of aphid species which can be useful if you have aphid problems on a number of different plants which may be different types of aphid, or do not know which aphid species is causing the problem. Ladybird adult beetles can fly and so adult ladybirds are best used to control pest insects in enclosed areas such as in homes, greenhouses or polytunnels.

MightyBug – Ladybird adults should be applied at a rate of 10 adults per square meter.

One pack treats either 2.5 or 10 square meters depending on pack size.

  • MightyBug – Ladybird adults containing 25 adults treats 2.5m sqm 
  • MightyBug – Ladybird adults containing 100 adults treats 10m sqm 


When is it best to use? 















Ladybird adult MightyBugs require temperatures of 12-13°C to be active. In unheated greenhouses or plants grown outdoors this would typically mean it is suitable for use April to October. Naturally in the UK, ladybird adults will hide and be dormant through the colder and shorter daylight hours of our winter months (October to March). Because of this natural behaviour even use indoor during this period may result in lower levels of activity, especially if no artificial light is used.
