It's ladybug time!
This voucher may be redeemed online at Insect Lore.com for one vial of 10 to 12 ladybug larvae and all the nutritious food they need to grow into adult ladybugs. The larvae, which look very different from their adult counterparts, will eat, grow and molt several times before transforming into friendly Pink-Spotted ladybugs! After you have fed and observed your ladybugs for a few days, release them outdoors, where they will protect against harmful pests like aphids and mites.
Express delivery of your ladybug larvae is included. Be sure you have an Original Ladybug Land Habitat to house your ladybug larvae.
Follow these suggestions if you would like your ladybugs to remain in your garden:
- Try to release them in the early morning when temperatures have reached at least 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Before you let your ladybugs go, lightly mist your plants and flowers with water to provide a natural place for thirsty ladybugs to drink.
- Look for plants that are infested with ladybugs’ favorite food -aphids, whiteflies, thrips, or any soft-bodied insect. Be sure to release your ladybugs near this food source.
- Ladybugs like to live under rocks, roots and logs, so it is helpful to release them near these hiding places as well!
Watch the Ladybug Life Cycle Again!
Once ladybugs emerge from their pupas, it can take about 12 hours for their spots to appear.
