It's the last week for our insect study. We have collected bugs, watched complete metamorphosis with butterflies, and studied insects for seven weeks. Despite all that, we couldn't resist pulling out the Lady Bug Land, which was stored in our attic this past week. We were visiting my parents and collected five live ladybugs.
After we placed them into the artificial habitat, we scavenged through our pantry for something to feed them. Lacking raisins, we settled on craisins. These ladybugs liked them!
After observing them for several days, we took them outside.
Then, released them.
