    Notice: I did no research and cannot say that lady bugs will actually rid you of that particular problem... I just know they do help with some stuff. Also, please note, I heard a story of someone getting those for their CP green house and it took no time at all for all the bugs to be eaten by the plants... Other than that stuff, good luck.

    Edit:
    this page shows 2 types of miniture wasps that can be used for biological control though... A in deepth search would probably come up with more possibilities of course.

    oh, I'm aware of the lady bug issue... just thought it would be funny to see thousands of lady bugs running around the greenhouse in response to the neglect.

    What a bloody shambles this situation is. A greenhouse can be a highly productive, fruitful place or it can turn in to an utter shambles due to neglect. Best of luck getting this all sorted out!

    If it doesn't get fixed soon, you can give us his email and we can all persuade him in to taking action. And if not, then I'll spam him to kingdom come. >_> ...just...kidding... :shifty eyes:
