+ 0 Votes Brick of ladybugs aidemzo_adanac February 18, 2013 at 1:33am PST Most people use a brick of ladybugs to rid plant pests. You can get a brick of 1000 LIVE ladybugs for a few bucks. It's rock hard and about the same size as a pack of smokes. It looks like a freeze dried coffees brick but a bit smaller, when you cut it open, the room is instantly filled with ladybugs. Apparently they live in some dormant state where they can be put into a sort of suspended animation until the brick is sliced open. For a good laugh, take a brick to someone's house during a party and cut it open. It will take them MONTHS to get rid of them all.
