The cold spring with a few warm spells has knocked them back - they came out of hibernation, but there was nothing for them to feed on, so many died.

Come to think of it , we havent seen any ladybirds either----but have plenty of butterflies & bees---no shortage here.


Have only seen one on my allotment feasting on the blackfly on the runnerbeans. Im not for from you Sprecks, just along the coast in Worthing

You can have some of mine they are everywhere!!!! Swarms of them in Berkshire!!


oooh send some here too.  Not a black spot anywhere, i miss the little critters really I do.  I think a saw a lavea the other day but not quite sure.  But have had loads of bees and butterflies, mostly large and small whites.


Same as Cherry say, i have not seen any in cheshire yet. lots of bees and butterlies though.

I have a huge lavender in my back garden which is covered in bees. Its a bit near the washing line so have to be careful getting the washing in especially as im allergic to bee stings. So far no mishaps this year. Have only seen a few wasps and they are on the allotment.

Here in E Suffolk I saw 1 ladybird a couple of days ago........!  Lots of large and small whites and peacocks on my lavenders and buddleis though, and a fair number of bees.  No wasps....


Have finally seen some blue butterflies, common blues. For years I thought these were Holly Blues, I thought common blues were bigger than that.

More ladybirds on the allotment mostly on the apple trees so hopefully they are just late in appearing.

We had loads last year but have only seen two over the last few days, however have not got any aphids for them to eat so perhaps thats why?

Still no ladybirds here in Derbyshire - have seen two only. One (a yellow one) was trotting about on my car bonnet and the other (red) was traipsing up my window.

Where have they all gone?
