    Staff Writer (12/4/2013): Like most Lady Beetles, the Signate Lady Beetle eats many nuisance insects such as aphids, mealybugs and scales (white, cottony or waxy insects that attach to tree stems and leaves). They have voracious appetites and help control pest populations without the use of pesticides.
