Do ladybugs pollinate flowers?

If I place ladybugs in my greenhouse will they pollinate the flowers, or do I need honey bees / bumble bees?

    ladybugs will eat aphids, etc., but you need bees (or hand-pollination) for most plants.

    Wow, how do you think insects would survive if they did not have plants to eat off of. Beetles and Flys are early pollinators for plants, it is not just a Bee that can pollinate, lord where would we be if it was?
