Ladybugs eat aphids, mealy bugs, scale, leaf hoppers, various plant-eating worms and other destructive pests, which makes them a great chemical-free alternative pest control method. It's not always easy to attract these little garden-protectors, so buy a swarm instead.

Orcon, a company providing natural solutions to pest problems, offers packages of 1,500 lady bugs. Ladybugs don't fly at night, so release this swarm of pest-killers in your garden at sundown and witness the magic. Each ladybug is capable of scarfing down up to 50 aphids a day. The ladybugs will lay eggs in your garden as well, so if any new pests try to take back the garden, a fresh force of your tiny warriors will be there to back you up.
