Can ladybugs survive in cold weather?
We have aphids and thrips taking over our Asian greens in our high tunnel. I’m wondering if it is an okay time of year to release ladybugs in there. We’re in Culpeper county VA, zone 7a. Nighttime temperatures are cold and have been in the mid twenties to upper thirties. It’s supposed to be 25 tomorrow night but then staying above freezing for the next week or so. We will also be putting row cover over the beds so they’ll be double covered and hopefully able to survive.
