LADYBUG: Myriad Botanical Gardens Crystal Bridge annual "Bug Out". Ladybugs crawl along the hands of Darius Lacey, age 9, third-grader from Wilson Elementary School.  More than 70,000 ladybugs were released by staff, students, and visitors in the Crystal Bridge as a part of the Gardens' Integrated Pest Management program.  Integrated Pest Management is a way horticulturists at the Myriad Botanical Gardens eliminate aphids without using toxic chemicals.  Staff photo by Paul B. Southerland
