Every gardener wishes that they had ladybugs in their yard!
Besides being iconic and adorable, ladybugs are voracious munchers of those pesky aphids.
But how can we get these cute and hungry guests into our gardens?
It’s not that easy, especially in the city.
But BH we finally succeeded in creating a thriving ladybug colony in our little backyard in Ramat Beit Shemesh.
In this video I explain how we did it.
(Hint: we did NOT buy them, nor do we recommend buying. I explain why in the video)

My name is Naomi and this is my tiny little farm in the heart of the rapidly growing city of Beit Shemesh, Israel. I enjoy growing, making and processing as much of my family's food and household essentials as possible, while nurturing a biodiverse ecosystem filled with beauty and life.
