  • Did you know that the ladybug a.k.a the ladybird, is more correctly known as the ladybeetle. The insect goes through the 4 stages of metamorphosis, hatching from an egg to become a voracious larva, then forming a pupa from which the colorful ladybug emerges. 
  • Characteristics: Ladybug eggs are attached to leaves of plants infested by aphids, which provide a ready food source for the hungry larva. After molting four times, it enters the pupa stage.
  • Size and Color: The larva stage of the ladybug is said to resemble an alligator with its long jaws. The bright red and black adult ladybug figure is 2 ½ inches wide, about the same as a large spoon.
  • The Life Cycle of a Ladybug is part of the Safariology® collection. Non-toxic and BPA free.
