Rome, June 5 - Some 10,000 ladybirds, also known
as ladybugs in North America and elsewhere, were set free in the
public gardens of Latina, just south of Rome, as part of a green
initiative to fight unwanted insects that attack the park's
plants and trees.
The cheerful little aphid eaters are part of a program by
Sogin, the Italian state-owned company responsible for the
clean-up of the country's nuclear sites.
Latina Prefect Antonio D'Acunto, Mayor Giovanni Di Giorgi,
Sogin CEO Giuseppe Nucci and 130 elementary students attended
the setting-free of the ladybirds whose job is to protect the
park's 300 linden trees from foliage-munching larvae.
"This initiative has cultural value for all of our
territory and will help educate tomorrow's citizens, which is
why we have invited our elementary school students here today,"
Mayor Di Giorgi said.
