I have been lumbered with the task of establishing a culture of
the two-spotted ladybird (Adalia bipuctata).  It is a predatory
ladybird that feeds mainly on aphids.

My brief is to establish a breeding colony of at least 400

Any advice, criticism, warnings gratefully received, especially
any information on artificial diets.
