N.B. Make sure you select LIVE below and we will organise delivery of BOTH the kit and the ladybird larvae together for either w/c 03/09 or w/c 10/09.

The Ladybird Breeding Kit contains everything you need to raise your own ladybirds (NATIVE British Adalia Bipunctata), which can then be released. Ladybirds are one of the best known beneficial insects and are a welcome sight in the garden helping to control a range of pests including aphids, so why not have a go and breed your own. Ideal for children, schools or a unique gift.

N.B. The Ladybird Larvae and Food are available between March and September, so order the kit with a VOUCHER at any other time of year i.e. ideal as a gift, or order it with Ladybird Larvae and Food included between March and September.

This Ladybird Breeding Kit comes complete with clear plastic breeding chamber (12cm in diameter), an educational poster, instruction guide and EITHER 25 x Ladybird Larvae and food (available March to Sept) OR a VOUCHER for the 1st lot of ladybird larvae and food, which can be redeemed between March and Sept (ideal as a gift). The Ladybird Breeding Kit allows adults and children to study all the stages of ladybird development - see the larvae feed, then pupate and the ladybirds develop before releasing them into your garden to tackle your pest problems. The kit is easy and fun for green gardeners of all ages.

How does it work? When you are ready to begin, redeem the VOUCHER and within 7-10 days you will receive 25 ladybird larvae, food & instructions. Transfer the larvae to the breeding chamber and add the food. It takes 3-4 weeks to raise adult ladybirds from larvae. The larvae will feed, grow and shed their skins 3 times before pupating. After a further 6 to 8 days, the adults emerge. At first the adults are yellow, but within a few hours their rear wings harden and turn red. The adult ladybirds can be studied for a few days before releasing them into your garden to tackle your insect pests.

N.B. The Ladybird Breeding Kit is designed to be re-useable. You can re-order a Ladybird Kit Refill (containing 25 x ladybird larvae and food) anytime between March and September and reuse the kit.
