72,000 Ladybugs released inside the Mall of America!

Now that we're on the subject of gardening, one of the most destructive and common pests that can invade your plantings are Aphids.

On Earth Day, April 22nd, a group of Twin Cities third graders from the Visitation School in Bloomington, Minnesota, received a wonderful environmentally friendly and healthy lesson in how to combat pests naturally as they released 72,000 Ladybugs inside the Mall of America.

The Mall of America is so large that it houses well over 30,000 live plants that have attracted an infestation of Aphids. The release of these wonderful natural beneficial insects will combat the infestation while keeping the Mall and it's employees and shoppers healthier.

Watch the interview and release!
