Lethar­gic lady­birds

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IHAVE a num­ber of lady­birds hi­ber­nat­ing be­tween the dou­ble win­dows in my house. Some are ac­tive, some are co­matose and some seem to be dead. When should I open the win­dows and let them out? Jan­ice Robert­son, Som­er­set The RSPB ad­vises: ‘If you should hap­pen upon lady­birds in your house in win­ter, the best thing to do is to gen­tly en­cour­age them into a jar or box and place them out­side ei­ther un­der a hedge or in a suit­able shel­tered place, dur­ing the warmer part of the day.’
