    If the green bugs are aphids, you can get rid of them naturally (fairly, anyways) by taking a spray bottle with warm water and a tsp of dishsoap. I've done it to my roses and it works, but you need to be very liberal when you spray!

    They sell live lady bugs here at several of the nursery/garden centers. You might try calling around. 1000 bugs for $12 here.

    Yes, try a garden nursery.

    If you have any other garden questions, you might try posting on our sister forum TheEasyGarden .
