It's cold outside, and I'm worried about my ladybugs.Not the ladybugs in the garden. They are hibernating until spring, sleeping blissfully beneath blankets of leaf mulch. This is how ladybugs have passed their winters for millions of years. Come spring, they will awaken, stretch their stubby legs and dive into the emerging bug buffet that makes these colorful creatures so beloved by gardeners.Those ladybugs can fend for themselves. They are programmed to arise when breakfast is ready.But what about the ladybug I found swimming in my cereal bowl?

Stop where you are. Turn away from it. Do NOT go into the light! Too late. Oh, the humanity! No, it's not the war of the worlds, and no, the Orioles aren't back in first place. You know what we are talking about: dead ladybugs on St. Paul Street. Yes, dead ladybugs. Polka-dotted Volkswagen bodies, lifeless; ladybug wings, splayed in a death visage. Good luck gone bad. They did not turn away from the light. They went darkly into the ultraviolet light on the mean street of St. Paul. At The Standard at 501 St. Paul St., custodians sweep the dead ladybugs off the 20 glass-covered lights embedded in the sidewalk surrounding the apartment building.

Not every garden project is a raging success. If you have been a gardener for more than 10 minutes, you know that. The ladybug project is one of those not-a-raging-success stories. The cool and rainy spring brought with it plenty of garden pests, including the aphids that were chewing on my roses and the white flies that were attacking my herbs. At the suggestion of one of my colleagues, I decided to try the ladybug cure. Her husband had great success releasing ladybugs in his garden.

Tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I'd like to take a moment to express gratitude for ladybugs. They're aphid-eaters, after all. Organic gardeners love them. Ladybugs make chemical-free vegetables possible. They're also defenders of trees, shrubs and rose bushes. But that's not really why I'm grateful for them.(Note to the reader: Dan has not been sipping the Thanksgiving cabernet a little early; he's serious about this ladybug stuff. Please, read on.)Big numbers of ladybugs visited an old farmhouse in northern Baltimore County this fall, crawling under the windows, up the walls and decorating the kitchen ceiling in speckled beads.

Our house is overrun with ladybugs. I know they're beneficial garden insects, but hundreds of them on your windows and even the dining room table are a bit daunting. Suggestions, please! Lady beetles are indeed beneficial, but the brownish-orange lady beetles joining you at dinner are not our native ones. Asian lady beetles are voracious predators and were imported to eat non-native insect pests. Because they are relatively new arrivals here, natural controls (i.e. diseases or insects that eat them)

It's a jungle out there, a pitched battle between gardener and voracious pest. Although I don't mind sharing a little, I resent the 50/50 split the marauding bugs often try to take. Yet, while I feel murderous toward greedy garden pests, I want to protect the birds, toads, and helpful insects. And by some estimates, 98 percent of insects are beneficial to the human enterprise. The trick is to thwart the others, the ones chowing down on your produce. One solution: Enlist their natural enemies -- other insects.
