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 a 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!

Insect Lore is the Original Butterflies-By-Mail Company, founded by entomologist Carlos White. It was Carlos’ dream to provide children with the opportunity to witness the wonder of butterfly metamorphosis up close in the home and classroom. After years of research and development, Insect Lore launched in 1969 with the creation of our beloved flagship butterfly-growing kit, the Live Butterfly Garden. Decades later, Insect Lore ships hundreds of thousands of caterpillars and butterfly kits to excited families and students across the US, the UK and Europe each year. Our innovative product line now includes ladybug, praying mantis and ant growing kits, as well as hands-on educational products that make science more approachable and relatable to young learners.
