During this time of year, it is important to monitor weather conditions in your area. Daytime temperatures should be over 55 degrees Fahrenheit to safely release your ladybugs.
Use your Ladybug Land habitat again and again! This time time you can raise double the ladybugs!
Your 2 tubes of baby ladybugs will arrive at your door in a temporary home, a plastic tube complete with nutritious food and instructions. Be sure you are available to accept and open the package immediately. You should already have an Original Ladybug Land Habitat in which to house your baby ladybugs. The entire metamorphosis process will take 17-21 days.
Release your ladybugs within a week of their emergence from the pupas. 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!
