Don't Squish Lady Beetle Eggs
Yes- they have barely emerged from winter but lady beetles are already laying eggs. While visiting my daughter in Edmonton last weekend she squished some while we were looking at leaves on plants. I pointed out other eggs on other leaves and she realized she had squished the good guys. Just in case you didn't know the eggs are laid in clusters and are yellow - usually on the underside of leaves but sometimes they are on the upper. Look for them and don't squish them!
