    Hi All
    I seem to have accidentally developed a Lady Bird farm this year. I have heaps of larvae, pupae and adults and I have been trying to find out how best to keep them here hibernating over Winter.
    Is it as easy as getting heaps of them into a box with some plants and aphids and misting them daily? Cheers Liz

    Sorry, Liz, I can’t help you there. Aphids go into a dormant stage too – so you’d be hardpressed to keep breeding them. But I’m sure someone will know – best to google I should think.

    Please let us know what you find out!
