    Some might stay but most will fly away. The following article gives tips on what to do before releasing them. You also can attract ladybugs with certain pollen bearing plants. Just add a couple more pots with the plants mentioned in the article. I can attest to fennel attracting ladybugs, both the green and bronze.
