They look pink/red on my monitor. Perhaps they are the cause of the red ladybug poop?

Jim, you need plenty of ladybugs, their eggs and larvae to take care of the aphids, so never mind the ladybug poop.

Actually, the aphids are early summer and the lady bugs are late summer. How can I get their calendars to mesh?

How can you get their calendars to mesh? You can move to silicon valley,CA where the aphids and ladybugs mesh.
