Amazing Bugs Ladybug Kit   A ladybug bonanza right in your classroom! NOTE: NOT AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY IN MAY, JUNE, JULY & AUGUST. IT'S TOO HOT FOR OUR LADYBUG FRIENDS TO TRAVEL!
Our kit provides everything needed for a learning experience with these tiny, polka-dotted insects. Safe for students to hold and observe up close! After studying, release ladybugs outside so they can help control garden pests in your community. Then simply rinse out mesh house with soap and water, let air dry, then fold and store for future use with another group of ladybugs or other live insects. Ladybugs are at their best in the fall and early spring. (Summer shipping is just too hot for these little guys!) Wonderful, full-color ladybug poster (available only in Amazing Bugs Kit).
  • Mesh bag of adult ladybugs
  • Reusable, pop-up mesh house
  • Full-color poster with ladybug lifecycle, care and activities.
  • More ladybug information and activities available for download FREE on this website.

Your ladybugs will arrive in a mesh cloth bag. Spritz them with a little water and place in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them. Place twigs and leaves in a glass or plastic container or pop-up mesh house. Open your bag with the ladybugs and pour them into your container. Sprinkle some water from your hands down onto the leaves and twigs for ladybugs to drink. You may add some cut raisins for food. Close or cover with cheesecloth, mesh or paper towel (secure in place with a rubberband). Keep ladybugs inside for up to 5 days, then release outside in a shady spot.

Available: Can be shipped in March and April and then again in September and October.Due to heat stress, we cannot ship from May to August.
