Green Lacewings or Ladybugs?
Hi. We have a live oak tree that has an aphid problem. I released a few ladybugs on it last year and it worked pretty well. I’ve since learned that Green Lacewings may be a better solution as they’ll stay put longer. Since I need to get them in the tree, what is the best way to do that? And I’m assuming 1,000 would be plenty — at least to start. None of our other trees or plants have the aphids. An arborist already trimmed the tree which helped, but they’re back (not as bad as before). Thanks!
