Children and adults are invited to the release of ladybugs into the museum’s field of corn, squash and beans.
Ladybugs are beneficial insects—they help control aphids and act as a natural pesticide for plants in place of chemicals. About 9,000 ladybugs will be released by Smithsonian horticulturists and entomologists throughout the summer which will provide a natural form of pest control. Museum's staff entrance. Free.
