Given the damage harlequin ladybirds do to our native fauna it can only be a matter of time before the government adds them to section 14 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981) along with the likes of the Colarado beetle and grey squirrels (actually grey squirrels can now be released if you get a licence from Natural England!).
Should we preempt the law by not releasing any harlequin ladybirds we catch? I'd be interested in your feelings on this one.
