Our Buddleja has attracted a swarm of hover flies and ladybirds. Any answers as to why please??



If its in flower then the hoverflies will be after the nectar with some pollen and the ladybirds will be after some pollen to bulk up their protein supplies before laying eggs.

Possibly also aphid infestation? Hello Fractal:-)

Lol, yes indeed, that would be the obvious answer.
