    Green Ladybugs

    What are those little green ladybugs? They are everywhere in Omaha and they are playing havoc on our flowers! They are chewing holes in the petals and are impossible to keep away. Is there anything at Lowe's that can be purchased to spray on flowers to keep these little bastards away? Thanks!

    Nope. They literally are identical to ladybugs...except green.

    Re: Green Ladybugs

    Aren't they those Japanese "ladybugs" that were imported a few years back because, like ladybugs, they eliminated a certain pest, however, since they have no natural predator here, their growth was unchecked and their population skyrocketed and became a pest themselves?

    Not likely those are redish/orange in color.

    No those are Japanese Beetles, which are an invasive species that cause damage to plants, too.
