Live Ladybug Larvae Mailed Directly to You
Ladybug Land comes with a coupon to send away for 15 to 20 ladybug larvae, which will arrive in a tube that contains all of the food the larvae will need for this part of their life cycle.

Ladybug Land

Dome includes magnifying lens. View larger.
Once you receive your larvae, put them in the Ladybug Land domed habitat and watch them crawl over the plastic paths and "mountains," eat their special food, and grow.

Observe the Metamorphosis Up Close
Eventually, the crawly little larvae will enter the pupae stage, in which they attach themselves to the habitat dome and begin their metamorphoses into adult ladybugs. Insect Lore guarantees at least 10 larvae will grow into adult ladybugs.

Your Very Own Ladybugs
Once the spotted ladybugs emerge, children can have lots of fun feeding them, watching them crawl around, and even carefully removing them and holding them. You can feed your ladybugs raisins that have been plumped in water, or you can feed them aphids from your backyard. The kit comes with a pipette and a watering pad for giving the ladybugs water.

If you receive your ladybug larvae during warmer weather, when temperatures are above 55 degrees, you can experience the excitement of releasing mature ladybugs into the wild. Larvae are available for delivery year-round, so if yours arrive in a colder month, you can keep your fully-grown ladybugs in the habitat for their lifespan. Ladybugs can live for up to a year in the wild, but if you keep them in their habitat, they'll live for about two to three weeks.

Additional mail-in certificates are available for order, so you can reuse Ladybug Land and experience the magic of metamorphosis again and again.

What's in the Box
Ladybug Land observation habitat with magnifying lid and watering pad, pipette, activity guide, full instructions, and mail-in coupon for 15 to 20 ladybug larvae, and food

When I looked at them, later that same day, all of them were dead.
coastal grandma
Finally about 4 months after we ordered the larvae (and had received nothing), I called the company.

We loved watching the lady bug larvae , and then seeing lady bugs emerge!

I bought this for my son's third birthday. He's already an avid entomologist. The larvae arrived just as expected already shedding its skin, which each one did multiple times. It was fascinating for my husband and me as well. The three of us found ourselves glued together watching these amazing creatures as the larvae shed it's final skin and entered the pupa stage. Several days after the fully-formed ladybugs emerged (they were yellow at first), we set them free into our back yard. They have a distinct appearance which is slightly different than the ladybugs we're accustomed to seeing around here. Therefore we have been able to easily identify them when we come across them in our yard.
We received about 14 or 15 ladybug larvae and all survived to become ladybugs except for one, which I consider to be pretty impressive. The container was especially effective because my son was not able (or tempted) to manhandle to ladybugs, yet it was easy to keep the water filled with the specially designed lid and water tube. We had an excellent view of all the events taking place inside. I would recommend purchasing books to go along with this. We had four different simple books relying upon excellent photographs and easy-to-understand descriptions. This heightened my son's (and our) anticipation and helped us to better understand what was happening.
I can honestly say that this has been well-worth the price we paid for it. Soon we're going to get a refill kit of ladybug larvae and begin anew.

My 4 year old daughter is a ladybug nut. We got this for Christmas and sent away for our larvae which come in a tube in the mail with all the food they need. Even the adults were fascinated watching the larvae turn to pupa and then to ladybugs. The customer service was very helpful when we called because our bugs stopped doing anything. They told us the bugs were "dormant" because it was too cold in my daughters room. We moved them to a warmer spot and within 30 minutes had ladybugs!! Definitely worth the cost. It is clean and sturdy thank goodness! Although the inside does get slightly messy (of course). We loved it.

I bought this for my niece for her birthday. I was disappointed to find out when the package was delivered that they don't send the ladybug larva to Oregon. There wasn't anything indicating that the ladybug larva couldn't be sent to certain states.

I was excited to purchase this for my kids to witness the life cycle of lady bugs. I also have an organic vegetable garden and was equally excited to release the adult lady bugs into it when they were adults. I never got to fully do either.....

I found this kit when I was searching for "live lady bugs" to order as beneficial insects for my garden. I though this would be great. Based on the first two 5 star reviews from 2004 on this product I went ahead and ordered.

- You have to pay $5 more to have the lady bug larvae shipped to you.... ( I wish this was in larger print on the product description page, not a big deal as I understand shipping live insects does cost money, just wish I had seen it before ordering)
- Our first batch of larvae all arrived DOA. I emailed customer service and they told me to wait a week to make sure before contacting them back. They said sometimes the larvae do not move much and need time to acclimate. I wrote them back after a week as everything still was DOA.
- The second batch arrived a few days later. The company does ship well and provided tracking and email confirmations which was nice. This time only half the contents of the shipping vial were DOA. You can clearly see the live ones moving around. I think the week wait was a little much. You should be able to discern viability in just 24-36 hrs. However, they do make you wait the required number of days.
- We filled the dome food tray with the wet sponge and placed the larvae inside. Soon mold began to grow on the food sponge and larvae started dying. Within one week all the larvae were dead despite us cleaning out the mold and following the instructions to the letter!
- It is a real heart breaking experience for the kids to watch the larvae not make it.

I got this for my 3 yr old's birthday after our tremendous luck with the butterflies. (another 5 stars). well the lady bugs came out of their cocoons four days ago and are munching raisens and runnning around the pavillion. she LOVES them. we only ended up with 6 live ladybugs but that's plenty for her. she runs to check them every morning and sit and watches them for long periods of time (for a 3-yr-old). i am very happy with this product and will certainly get more ladies.

I gave this to my 2nd grader for Christmas. It took a while for the larvae to arrive due to "unexpected need" -- how does that happen when the same company sells the land and ships the ladybugs? But once the tube of larvae arrived the land did exactly what it promised. My kids loved watching as the larvae became pupae attached to the dome, then hatched as ladybugs. We kept them in the dome for a couple of weeks (until after the last frost) then released them on our rose bushes. Ten minutes later the kids were begging to order more larvae!
