Yes, they do. In fact, they will eat any insect that finds its way into the spider's web. Lady bugs are very effective for pest control as they normally eat about 60 insects a day. They prefer to feed on soft body's insects such as mealy bugs, mites and fleas.
Simply so, what kind of bugs eat fleas?
Use friendly bugs called beneficial nematodes, which are tiny insects that eat flea larvae and can be sprayed onto your yard every 6 to 8 weeks. They don't harm ladybugs, earthworms, or other creatures you want in your yard.
How long can a flea survive without a host?
Undisturbed and without a blood meal, a flea can live more than 100 days. On average, they live two to three months. Female fleas cannot lay eggs until after their first blood meal and begin to lay eggs within 36-48 hours after that meal.
