The Adventure Continues… Ladybugs

Ladybug in Fair Oaks

If you’re fond of ladybugs, then this episode of California’s Gold should be a real treat. Ladybugs have become popular as a way to control garden pests without using chemical pesticides; and I remember an incident in my childhood when my sister and I decided to trap a bunch of ladybugs in a coffee can and release them onto our mom’s rose bushes to eat aphids. We thought it was a brilliant idea — until the ladybugs decided they wanted nothing to do with the roses and flew away.

Huell goes on a honest-to-goodness ladybug hunt in a secret location and answers the burning question, “Just where do ladybugs come from?” You’ll be surprised and overwhelmed at what he uncovers.
