biological war against parasites
    #3293073 - 10/29/04 10:49 AM (12 years, 5 hours ago)

Hello fellas, I wanted to share this wonderful experience I've made - instead of going straight to the remedies to cure my parasited plants (mostly black turtle suckers on cacti) i decided to make it natural since I noticed the contaminated plants outside were now clean.
And so I brought the contamed plants outside, around the fennel plants (the _ladybugs_ hang out) together with my other cacti and catched a ladybug (boohoo, nowhere to buy them here) from a fennel plant and put on the contamed cactus (like a child would do) and for my surprise it worked, the ladybugs crawl around eating the parasites with no mercy. I have not found much more than 5 or so but that was pretty enough for me.
I believe most ladybugs work, the classic 'amanita' ladybug (the red ones) are good, as well as the black with white/red spots and smaller yellowish ones also seemed to appreciate the parasites...

Awsome. Yeah they are some varacious predators. I often go out in a field this time of year looking for praying mantis nests. I get five of them and keep em in the fridge till spring time. Then bring out and place them around my gardens. Same idea. Kinda.
