The ladybug population in the park comes in cycles and it looks as though it is picking up. Naturally, when the plants bloom, the ladybugs appear, but not before the aphids. I spotted more than five ladybugs on a short walk around the park today. Not only that, but it seems to be mating season, so we expect to have many more in the park soon! If you are visiting us at LASHP, take a moment to see how many you can count!
