Each year ladybugs🐞 take refuge in my home over the winter.

These last weeks my pepper plants became infested with Aphids. I have been treating them with a homemade chemical-free solution. But this proves to be effective for only a short period of time.

Putting nature to the test.
Aphids are a favorite meal for ladybugs. I’m sure by now they are pretty hungry ????. Here are a few before pictures. (click on pictures for a bigger view).

I particularly love this picture. With the ladybug being such a tiny insect, it was nice getting this close-up of it capturing an aphid.

Today’s weather. With it being such a grey sky type of winter. Days like these feel heavenly.

I will update the results soon… Gentle🦋
