Raise Your Very Own Butterflies
When you are ready to begin your project, visit the InsectLore website and use your certificate to receive your cup of caterpillars. Your caterpillars will arrive within 3 to 10 business days. Caterpillars will arrive in a clear plastic cup with nutritious food. Place the cup in a safe place away from direct sunlight and drafts. The caterpillars will remain in the cup and will eat, spin silk, and grow to 10 times their original size. After 7 to 10 days they will hang upside down and harden into chrysalides (chrysalides are also known as pupae). Move the Chrysalides to the Butterfly Habitat. The Butterfly Habitat (included with the Live Butterfly Garden) is a reusable, cylindrical mesh container perfect for up close butterfly viewing. When not in use it folds flat for easy storage. Once the chrysalides have hardened, gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat. It will take about 7 to 10 more days for them to complete the incredible transformation to adult butterflies. Children and adults alike will want to keep a close eye on the habitat so they can witness the fascinating birth of their Painted Lady Butterflies.
The chrysalides will get noticeably darker when the butterflies are ready to emerge. It is so exciting to watch a butterfly pull itself out of the chrysalis with its new, long legs. At first the wings of the butterfly are crumpled and wet, but over the next hour it will pump blood into its wings until they are fully expanded and hardened. During this time the butterfly will also fuse the two halves of its tongue, or proboscis. When its wings are dry and hardened and the proboscis is fused, your butterfly is ready to fly.
Children will love to feed their butterflies. Place fresh flowers in the habitat for your butterflies to rest on and then use the feeding pipette included to drip sugar water, or nectar, on the flowers. Watch the butterflies eagerly sip the nectar with their long proboscises. Butterflies also love to feed from fresh slices of watermelon and oranges.
Enjoy your butterflies for a few days, and then experience the excitement of letting them go to continue their amazing life cycle. Release your butterflies within a week of their emergence from the chrysalides when temperatures are above 55 degrees. Simply take the butterfly habitat out to your yard, unzip the cover, and let your butterflies go. Butterflies will often land on little hands and faces before flying away. Watch for your butterfly friends, as they may decide to remain in your garden for a few days.
Do you miss your butterflies? No problem! Your Live Butterfly Garden is reusable, so you can enjoy the miracle of metamorphosis again and again. Cups of Caterpillars are available year round.

Insect Lore Ladybug Land
Experience nature up close with Ladybug Land from Insect Lore. This enthralling educational kit gives kids the opportunity to observe ladybugs through every stage of their lifecycle. Children ages four and up can watch real ladybug larvae while they eat and grow into pupae and metamorphose into Pink Spotted Ladybugs. Children will love viewing the ladybugs in their included observation habitat, which has a built-in magnifying lens.
At a Glance:
Age: 4 years and up
Requirements: Larvae, which are available with the included mail-in coupon ($5 shipping and handling required; ships to all U.S. states except Hawaii).
Warranty: Insect Lore guarantees that at least 10 larvae sent through the mail will metamorphose into adult ladybugs.
Live Ladybug Larvae Mailed Directly to You
Watch larvae turn into ladybugs! View larger.
Ladybug Land comes with a coupon to send away for 15 to 20 ladybug larvae, which will arrive in a tube that contains all of the food the larvae will need for this part of their life cycle.
Once you receive your larvae, put them in the Ladybug Land domed habitat and watch them crawl over the plastic paths and "mountains," eat their special food, and grow.
Dome includes magnifying lens. View larger.
Observe the Metamorphosis Up Close
Eventually, the crawly little larvae will enter the pupae stage, in which they attach themselves to the habitat dome and begin their metamorphoses into adult ladybugs. Insect Lore guarantees at least 10 larvae will grow into adult ladybugs.
Your Very Own Ladybugs
Once the spotted ladybugs emerge, children can have lots of fun feeding them, watching them crawl around, and even carefully removing them and holding them. You can feed your ladybugs raisins that have been plumped in water, or you can feed them aphids from your backyard. The kit comes with a pipette and a watering pad for giving the ladybugs water.
If you receive your ladybug larvae during warmer weather, when temperatures are above 55 degrees, you can experience the excitement of releasing mature ladybugs into the wild. Larvae are available for delivery year-round, so if yours arrive in a colder month, you can keep your fully-grown ladybugs in the habitat for their lifespan. Ladybugs can live for up to a year in the wild, but if you keep them in their habitat, they'll live for about two to three weeks.
Additional mail-in certificates are available for order, so you can reuse Ladybug Land and experience the magic of metamorphosis again and again.
