Hi there. I am just a 'beginner' gardener and novice poster too.
I noticed loads of these little pests were clinging to my hanging basket flowers and so I ordered some ladybirds, I haven't received them yet, but I really can't wait for them to arrive. I am like a 5 year old waiting for Christmas at the moment.
I ordered them from greengardener.co.uk, I checked out a few websites after googling and this one seemed among the cheapest and with the most info. I opted for the ladybird family as you get ladybirds and larvae, my biggest concern is that the ladybirds will just up and fly away once I introduce them to my baskets, the larvae at least will have to hang around a while and hopefully munch up a few critters in the meantime.
Hope that helps
