beautiful and also one of the most beneficial so why not have a ladybug habitat

Of all the insects in the great outdoors, the ladybugs
or Ladybirds as they are sometimes called, are possible the most beautiful. When
you are outside in the garden, sometimes ladybugs
will land on you and crawl on your clothing. And you can see one of the wonders
of nature close up and personal. Ladybugs are also beneficial to your garden as
they eat aphids.

The most common ladybug habitat on the market is another
Insect Lore product, the Ladybug
habitat. It is a very simple kind of habitat just a plastic bowl over a colorful
plastic base but it does the trick, and the ladybugs are very visible. Also on
top there is a built-in magnifying
to give you a better view of what is going on in Ladybug Land.
Lady Bug Land
This is the standard nature through the mail box-set, so you
have to order the little ladybug larva after you have assembled the main ladybug
habitat. This can take some time, which is always a problem and the company will
not send the larva out during winter, so the wait could be longer. Also they
will not ship them to Oregon and Hawaii, but they will send them to Alaska,
Parents Do You Want Your Children To Be Better
children are having problems at school, it could be because their reading is
not up to par. The problem with reading is that it can affect all subjects,
not just English. Even in Math you have to be able to read the text to
understand what to do.
I know one
mother who helped her daughter from the bottom in her class to the top ten in
me show you how to give
your child a head start with reading and writing.
You receive a certificate for 15-20 live larva and after
sending away, the larva come in a tube with their own food supply. The company
guarantees that 10 will be perfect specimens. If there are any problems they
will send you more. As with most of the nature in the mail critters, they come
with an instruction booklet and fact sheets.
Even though the Ladybird Land seems to be the only ladybird
habitat on the market there are a couple of similar products available.
One that looks quite promising is the Ladybugs with Lantern
Habitat. This habitat is more like a butterfly habitat, a collapsible butterfly
net cylinder very similar to the Butterfly
Even though this is not a habitat as such, you can send away
for somewhere between 75 and a 100 ladybug larva. This would ideal for the home
gardener with an aphid problem. First you could have your kids grow the larva
into ladybugs and after they are big enough the kids could release the ladybugs
into your garden. The product specs recommend letting the big bugs free after
you have shown your friends and keep then for a couple of days.
You can also buy a large tub of Ladybugs
at the local garden
but for an educational experience this should be well worth the difference in
tub contains 1500 ladybugs.
Also the collapsible lantern can be reused to house other insects,
whether flying or crawling.
Another product on the market to do with ladybugs is the
Ladybug Habitat. This colorful bucket comes with a ladybug attractant as well as
with the standard fact sheets and booklets. This one is slightly different, as
you do not send away for your ladybugs.
The attractant is to
attract them so you put the attractant in the bucket, put the bucket in the
garden and wait to collect your ladybugs. A sort of do it yourself ladybug
collecting kit. Then after you have finished observing the ladybugs you let them
go free again.
You could use this in
connection with the Ladybug Lantern. First you grow the ladybugs in the Ladybug
Lantern, then let them go. After a few days you set up the Ladybug Habitat and
see how many you can catch. Just a thought.
If you want
ladybugs in your garden have a look at the Ladybug Cabin from AbirdsWorld. This
beautiful looking ladybug home would be a welcome addition to your garden. After
you let the ladybugs go, wait and see how many make a home in the Ladybug Cabin.
One aspect about insects, ladybugs included, is they are
temperature sensitive and that means if it gets cold they will stop growing. So
if your larva or ladybugs stop getting bigger, move them to a sunny spot on a
window ledge. That should cure the problem.
Ladybugs are very beautiful insects, therefore a ladybug
habitat where you can see the ladybugs up real close, would be ideal for the
young insectologist in your family.
