CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Product Packaging: Standard Packaging
The ladybug larvae will busy themselves searching for food, eating, molting, and growing constantly. It’s fun to keep a scientific journal to record the larvae’s activity and growth. How many times do the ladybug larvae shed their skin?
Soon, the larvae will have stored enough energy to pupate. They will attach themselves to the floor and walls of the dome, curl up and harden into pupae. After about 5 days, they will emerge as adult ladybugs.
Once your larvae have metamorphosed into adult ladybugs, they will depend on you to provide them with food. Simply soak one or two raisins in water for about 5 minutes, blot them on a paper towel, cut them in half and drop them into the Live Ladybug Land. This should keep your ladybugs well fed for about a week. When the raisin disappears, place another one in the habitat.
The Ladybug Land comes with a certificate for 15-20 live larvae (additional $5.00 shipping and handling
Your child can witness every fascinating stage of ladybug metamorphosis with our see-through, domed Live Ladybug Land.
After you have enjoyed your ladybugs for a few days, it is best to let them go outdoors where they can begin the ladybug life cycle all over again. Ladybugs are especially helpful creatures and they can assist you in ridding your garden of harmful pests (like aphids).
If you would like your ladybugs to remain in your yard, try to release them in the morning. Simply take the Live Ladybug Land outside, remove the dome of the habitat and let your ladybugs fly away. A few may visit for a moment on hands and fingers before taking flight.
Your Ladybug Land Includes:
Mail in for Your Ladybug Larave
Your ladybug larvae will arrive at your door in a plastic shipping tube complete with nutritious food and instructions. Be sure you are available to accept and open the package immediately. You should already have a Ladybug Land Habitat in which to house your baby ladybugs.
Your ladybug larvae will eat, grow and molt for about a week to 10 days. Once they have stored enough energy, they will attach themselves to the walls and floor of their habitat to begin the pupal stage of their lives.
The Miracle of Metamorphosis
After approximately 5 days, the adult ladybugs will emerge from the pupas. At this point, your adult ladybugs will rely on you to provide their food. Simply soak one or two raisins in water for about 5 minutes and then blot them on a paper towel. Cut them in half and drop them in the Ladybug Land Habitat. That’s it! Repeat once the raisins have disappeared and be sure that your ladybugs are always supplied with water. If you have any plants outdoors that may be bothered by aphids, you might drop a few aphid-infested leaves in the habitat as well. Ladybugs love to eat aphids!
Let them Go!
Children often become attached to their ladybugs, but it is best to release them within a week of their emergence from the pupas. Take the habitat outdoors, remove the dome and your children will experience the special joy of setting their ladybugs free!
I should have read the critical reviews on Amazon first. What I thought would be cheap fun turned into an (almost) disaster. Read morePublished 11 days ago by cybiotic
