Adult ladybird beetles are well known aphid hunters. During development each ladybird beetle larva can consume hundreds of aphids or similar soft-bodied, sap-sucking garden pests.

Like green lacewings, ladybird beetles are commercially available for biological pest management. These predators however are more manageable in closed systems, like green-houses, rather than in outdoor applications.
