Biological war

lottabiologica        As most of migrants, I have planted in the new country some edible plants too.

Unfortunately, local insects (probably xenophobes) came infesting my plantation of basil.

Chemicals were, of course, prevented by the plants aim (I mean, eating). Therefore, we decided to use biological weapons: we captured a couple of ladybirds (or ladiesbird?) and carefully positioned them among the precious leaves.

And there they are,  since 4 days, chomping (I hope) the hideous aphids.
