The war continues in Papa Stronsay's green house. This time we are introducing ladybirds and ladybird larvae, as well as Aphidius and Aphidoletes in a bid to control the greenfly!
They all come in the mail. These ladybirds were shipped with Cheerios!
Br. Jean Marie, F.SS.R. introduces them to their new home.
They wasted no time in finding a snack!
The ladybird larvae.
We also found this other bug in the greenhouse and it's also doing a great job with the greenfly. Does anyone know what it is?
As we left the greenhouse yesterday evening, we were treated to a lovely rainbow!
