Ladybug Release at the American Indian Museum


On Friday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m., there will be a ladybug release at the National Museum of the American Indian into the museum’s field of corn, squash and beans. Ladybugs are beneficial insects—they help control aphids and act as a natural pesticide for plants in place of chemicals. About 9,000 ladybugs will be released by Smithsonian horticulturists and entomologists throughout the summer.
