Courtney –

I like your approach here and yes, we still have ladybugs and will be getting a fresh batch again in June. To knock down the pest numbers prior to releasing ladybugs I recommend using the Take Down Garden Spray. It is a mix of botanical pyrethrin and canola oil. Pyrethrin will provide a quick knockdown while the canola oil will suffocate any eggs that may be present. The product breaks down in 3-5 days and a couple applications may be necessary.

Hope it helps!
