Raise Your Very Own Ladybugs!
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 shipping and handling charge included)
- Great at home or in the classroom
- Witness the miracle of metamorphosis
- Use the habitat over and over
- Can be refilled with the Insect Lore Ladybug refil kit
Watch Ladybug Larvae Transform Into Friendly Ladybugs!
A Hands On Learning Expierence For Your Young Scientist
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:
- Beautiful diorama style habitat
- Mail in certificate for 15-20 ladybug larve
- Instructions with Complete Care and Activity Guide
- Built-in magnifying lid for up-close ladybug observation
- Water reservoir 'volcano' keeps thirsty ladybugs happy
- Watering pipette

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!

It is beginning of March in Northern California (temp = 55-70 degrees) and all the ladybugs arrived in the tube ALIVE! Hooray! I'm already luckier than several other Ladybug land customers. haha. Its been almost 2 days and they've grown so much.
I followed the instructions except for one step so far... The instructions and the Amazon video indicate to dump the tube's contents through the habitat's small hole at the top. After reading other negative reviews regarding moldy ladybug food beforehand, I decided that this action would actually cause the ladybug food to spoil, probably causing a toxic environment for the ladybugs. So, I actually took off the clear cover of the habitat first. Then, I dumped nearly powdery food onto the habitat's dry flattened area on the side of the hill. Still having the tube's open end on the flat area, I guided the clear cover's small open top over the tube's closed end. Be quick though, because you don't want to lose a ladybug! Once the clear cover snapped into place, then I emptied the paper strip and ladybugs into the container. This allowed the food to stay on the side of the hill. Finally, I used the enclosed dropper to place bottled water droplets into the gray fuzz in the water reservoir. Another option is to empty the clear cover upside down and then snap the bottom habitat into the cover while everything upside down.
My 2.5 yr old daughter is really enjoying the ladybug larvae right now.
3/16/2014 update: The larvae have now molted into adorable little ladybugs! Super easy maintenance of just adding some drops of water into the fuzzy ball reservoir. Nothing else needed to be done. Being a science nerd, I'm having more fun than my daughter, but whatever! Its fun. Its cheap. Its easy maintenance. Its been 2 weeks and they appear to be alive. So far, 11 ladybugs total. I'm happy with my experience. Company delivered ladybugs as promised. Ladybugs healthy and fun to watch. No problems at all.
3/21/2014 update: The larvae turned into adult ladybugs after 3 weeks of having them. Everything went an planned, according to the instructions. I am very pleased with product and my daughter enjoyed it so much! Due to the instructions indicating the ladybug life would be approx 3 weeks in habitat, I decided to let them free now. Too bad.... lots of fun! Looks like we'll need to order more soon!
See pics of crevices and squished ladybug =(
Update: The Insect Lore customer service is appalling. I went to the website to ask for another tube of ladybugs since they guarantee that five will make it to adulthood. There is neither a phone number nor e-mail address list listed for customer service on the website - there is only a live chat. I explained my situation to the person on the chat. She provided an e-mail address to which I was to e-mail photos of my ladybug land and an explanation of the problem so that she could work with a manager to help me. I immediately complied and sent the information as requested. That was eight days ago, and I have not received so much as an automated "We're working on it." I'm not amused.
