The two spotted ladybird; Adalia bipunctata is a native ladybird to the United Kingdom and Europe although sadly in decline SEE HERE. The adults feed on many species of aphids and are certainly a gardeners friend! During the winter months they will hibernate in window frames, walls, log piles or trees. In the spring they emerge, mate and lay eggs. Each adult can lay about 20-50 eggs per day. The eggs are elongated and orange to yellow colour. Once these hatch they develop into ladybird larvae, which also consume large numbers of aphids before they pupate and become adults.

Ladybird adults are highly effective predators of aphids.  Although they can be released outdoors on to infested plants such as roses, they perform particularly well in a confined space like a greenhouse or polythene tunnel.

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.

It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult.

Red bird mite [ Dermanyssus gallinae ] causes significant stress to infected birds and anemia, which  sometimes leads to death. Birds show signs of nervousness and even cannibalism.

Chickens/ hens  and other birds infected with Red Mite also see a drop in egg laying.

ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.

Androlis is available in 3 sizes M, L XL
