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.

Keep in mind that you have to pay $5 to actually get the ladybugs (shipping and "handling"). Read morePublished 8 days ago by Carrie

Waste of money. It's a plastic "environment" for bugs to turn into ladybugs. There is no educational purpose for spending money on this structure when you could make your... Read morePublished 1 month ago by wendybean
The ladybugs have all died after getting stuck in the gap in the bottom where the globe fits onto the base. None lasted more than 24 hours after several tries. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Michelle Miles
