Lady Bugs!

For Bronwen's Ladybug birthday party, Aunt Jana got her a Ladybug habitat. We ordered our larvae and they arrived within a week and a half. They came in a tube with some food and paper scraps.We watched the larvae for about another week, until they attached themselves to the dome in their pupae form.

After another 4 or 5 days, they hatched into ladybugs. Bronwen was thrilled, and she wasn't even sad when we let them out, because she wanted so badly for them to crawl on her. See next post for the video.

Loved the ladybug release video. Was amazed when she said "metamorhposis". ;)

That is so cool!!! And they are so good for your flowers and garden! I like the videos that follow. The ladybird that escapes up B's sleeve, and the lesson on the lifecycle. :)
