Your chemicals kill the ladybugs anyways... excessive water and fertilizers cause the water shoot growth to attract pests of all kinds... sickly growth from improperly pruned and planted bushes also create the problem...

The best way to go is to start with a systemic in the Spring and deal with any other issues as they appear... getting all freaked out about a couple of bugs and responding by poisoning the entire insect eco-system is what I call stupid... others call it money...
wise horticulture is your best defense against the destruction on your landscape beds...
