Mississippi State University Biology Professor Brandon Barton decided to test the hypothesis by putting ladybugs in soybeans infested with aphids, then subjecting a sample group with various sounds.

Ladybugs not exposed to loud sounds, consumed virtually all of the aphids. Both aphids and soybeans, however, appeared not to be affected by loud sounds.
