Coleomegilla maculata. Want to teach your child about ladybugs? Lady beetles are a great way to show your child all 4 stages of complete metamorphosis. Considered beneficial insects, lady beetle adults have been used in greenhouses and gardens to provide biological pest control. Compare the growth of this carnivorous insect to herbivorous butterflies, or just explore the unique body shape of lady beetle larvae.

Over the course of 10 to 14 days, watch the alligator-like larvae grow, pupate, and metamorphose into familiar adult lady beetles. We ship 10 to 15 larvae and guarantee at least 5 adult lady beetles. The larvae come with food and instructions.

Please note: Larvae are shipped via US Postal Service. Larvae are only shipped within the continental US (Not available for Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, or any other international shipments). Expedited shipping for this item is not available.

Due to increased demands for at home STEM activities during the Covid closures, there may be a slight delay of 7-10 days in shipping on Lady Beetle larvae.
