Lady Beetle Larvae (Coleomegilla maculata), Living

Product: (in stock)


Coleomegilla maculata. Want to teach metamorphosis but your students are already familiar with butterflies? Lady beetles are a great way to show students of all ages the 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.
