Need Ladybugs!

Need Ladybugs!

I realize while I ask this that many of you probably don't live anywhere close to me, but I'm taking a chance anyway: Based on previous summers, I'm concerned that this summer I will have to, once again, battle the Aphids who love to live in my cucumber and pepper plants out on my balcony. I don't like to use pesticides, mainly because the aphids gather right in the plants, not just in the soil, and I don't feel comfortable spraying that stuff directly on the peppers / cucumbers. So this year I would like to use ladybugs. I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I'm trying to figure out who sells ladybugs. The biggest challenge I'm having is finding a supplier who will sell me small amounts of them, because I'm in an apartment and I really think I only need about 20-25 ladybugs at the high point of the season. So if anybody knows where you can buy ladybugs in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, please let me know! Thanks!

    Hi, I’m looking to buy ladybugs too, to get rid of aphids on our Hydrangia. Did you find a source which sells ladybugs in the Ottawa area?
