If you ladybugs seem a little slow to go or irritable and going to fast slow them down with a drink of fresh apple or grape juice. Put some juice in a misting bottle and spray a little on them. If you don't have juice use some 7up, Sprite or Gator Aid.
They love the water and sugar. Once the grouchy ladybugs are freshly hydrated they should settle down and be happy aphid eaters.
