Full Description

The Ladybird Breeding Kit is designed to be reusable. When you are ready to have another go, order a Ladybird Breeding Kit Refill containing approx 25 x ladybird larvae and food (available between April and September) and reuse the kit. Green Gardener only supplies British Adalia bipunctata ladybirds, which can be released in the garden once they have matured. 

Use the Ladybird Breeding Kit to raise your own ladybirds (NATIVE British Adalia Bipunctata), which can then be released into your garden. 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.

This Ladybird Breeding Kit comes complete with clear plastic breeding chamber (12cm in diameter), an educational poster, instruction guide and EITHER 25 x LIVE Ladybird Larvae and food (available April to August) OR a VOUCHER for the 1st lot of ladybird larvae and food, which can be redeemed between April 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.
