ladybug house plans

I’ve read around online, and it says a tiny pool of water (as deep as half of a ladybug’s height) with some leaves and twigs in or near the house will help attract them.
My girlfriend and I have a vegetable garden, and we have succeeded thus far in making it chemical free, and as organic as possible.
Aphid populations will explode as soon as juicy young green tips are available, the best thing you can do is search early on new growth, on the underside of leaves and then continue to knock back the population, which-ever method you use.
I like the art work on the house but the design is not focused on the species, it leave a perch for bird some with eat ladybugs.  New blog giving more information on Ladybugs it called "Hx.
I run a conventional orchard.. Troy is right about ants, they will even overwinter aphid eggs in their nests, bringing them out to start up their little farms, usually on lower leaves, in the spring.
Suzanne Wainwright: For homeowner buying the convergent ladybird (Hippodamia convergens) and the Asian lady beetle (Harmonia axyridis), those are all wild harvested.
Suzanne Wainwright: Many ladybird beetles feed on pollen as part of their diet as adults.
Suzanne Wainwright: Almost all ladybird beetles sold in the US are wild harvested.
Recently, I was observing a @GroundChat discussion when @BugLadySuzanne mentioned that ladybugs that you can purchase for your garden are trapped in the wild, and that these ladybugs can carry parasites and diseases that will infect ladybugs native to your area.
Below is the transcript of my Q&A with Suzanne on ladybugs, how they’re harvested, and their role in garden pest control.
This same study found many of the harvested beetles to be infected with Microsporidia, a disease that shortens the ladybird’s life span and reducing the number of eggs laid by female ladybird.
A few years ago when I stopped using chemicals in my garden I saw an increase in pests and beneficial insects like ladybugs.
And to make your garden even more appealing to these beneficial insects, you can make the easy ladybug feeder shown above.
The raisins will draw the ladybugs to the feeder and feed them if aphids or other insects are scarce.
Hang your ladybug feeder and insert a couple of raisins into the bamboo feeder.
The DIYer put the feeder between rose bushes, and I think if squirrels were trampling through those, she would have bigger concerns than aphids and other insects.
When it comes time to release them into your garden, make sure you follow the instructions that come with the ladybugs to help boost your chances that they’ll want to make your garden their home.
If you’re still having trouble attracting the little buggers into your garden, you might want to consider buying ladybugs to release in your garden.
While the Asian ladybug is very effective for keeping down aphids, this non-native species prefers warmer temperatures and is the primary cause of ladybug infestations inside the home.
Along with insects, ladybugs also look for pollen for a food source, so there are numerous plants you can grow to help attract them.
Unlike most pesky bugs that you want to purge from your garden, ladybugs live up to their cute little name.

Why build a Ladybug House? Ladybugs are beneficial insects; they are one of the Good Bugs to have in the garden.
Aww I adore ladybugs, and what a neat idea for making a little ladybug house for the garden.
Despite their cute appearance, ladybugs (also known as lady beetles and ladybird beetles) are voracious predators with an insatiable appetite for aphids and other soft-bodied insect pests that attack many types of garden plants.
Ladybug Attractant is designed to lure ladybugs, lacewings and other beneficial insects to your garden.
A ladybug house will not attract a colony of ladybugs, and it may not even be enough to entice them to stay.
Building a Ladybug House is easy, and combines my gardening and woodworking hobbies into a fun project that everyone with a garden will enjoy.
Mount the finished ladybug house in a sunny garden location, between one to three feet above the ground.

Mount this specially designed wild bee & ladybug house in your garden to provide beneficial insects with an over-wintering shelter.
Use washers in front to allow pivoting for twigs, lady bugs, and cleaning.
Did you know that some insects are actually beneficial to your garden? Ladybugs, praying mantis, earwigs, bees and many others help lend a hand by combating certain pests such as aphids.
When seeking shelter, insects look for homes that have small nooks and crannies, are made from natural material, and provide safety from the elements—especially during the winter. I decided to add a green roof as well.
Knowing that these insects will stick around if they have a place to call home, this year I decided to make a place just for our ladybug friends.

After reading a bug story and briefly looking at some non-fiction books with pictures of bugs, list on a chart if the children like bugs or not.
Take the curiosity of bugs into your dramatic play area! Bring your science table with your dead bugs in jars, plastic bugs and insects and magnifying glasses into the dramatic play area.

This Bugs and Insects Theme page is filled with preschool activities and ideas for all areas of your classroom.
One year, we decided it would be so cool to order ladybugs for the classroom!  We would have them in our ladybug home, the children could observe them, journal about them, tell stories about them, etc.
Have the children paint using bugs instead of brushes! The yogurt sized lids should fit in your easel tray.
The children then count out the correct number of bugs to place in each cup.
The children take turns rolling the dice and coloring in that number of bugs.
Use the stamps to stamp lots and lots of bugs and insects on the paper.
VARIATION: You could also have these different types of bugs and insects and show each one doing the movements as you say this as a poem.
Bugs and Insects! We use these terms interchangeably, though they are different! Bugs are one type of insect.
Materials Needed: Show the children some pictures of insects.
The children cut out the leaves and then hole punch away! They can draw ants on the leaves (or give them stickers!) if they want.
Let the children create their own bugs.
EXTENSION: To work on small muscle control in addition to counting, provide plastic tweezers or tongs for the children to use to pick up each insect.
The children use the yellow stamp pad to press their thumb or finger into and place the appropriate number of thumbprint bees on each row.
Grade: K-2, Subject: Math, Animals, Hobbies, Play, Recreation, Holidays and Seasonal Themes, Early Learning, Topic: Addition and Subtraction, Counting and Numbers, Insects, Cooking, Seasonal Themes, Early Math Spring & Summer – Ladybug (Pattern) (Learning Activity, Lesson Plan) Use the pattern to create an oversized set of ladybug dominoes for counting , to organize children’s center time choices, and to learn about… Grade: Pre-K-K, Subject: Animals, Holidays and Seasonal Themes, Early Learning, Topic: Insects, Seasonal Themes, Early Math Ladybug Dots (Worksheet) Students count the dots on the wings of the ladybugs in the picture, then they write an equation to show the total number of dots each ladybug has.
In North America alone, they have been found feeding on 36 different species of aphids and other pests, and have greatly reduced the number of native lady beetles in North America.
However, we will consider the multicolored Asian lady beetles (MCALB), Harmonia axyridis (Pallas), as seasonal structural pests.
Boxelder Bugs and Multicolor Asian Lady Beetles (Ladybugs) are common home invaders during the fall in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Moreover, dead insect bodies of seasonal invaders inside wall voids, cracks and crevices attract dermestid beetles, such as hide beetles, larder beetles, carpet beetles.
Aphids to eat rose plants and since ladybugs to eat aphids, many ladybugs will lay their eggs on the leaves of rose bushes so that when the larvae hatch out of the eggs, they will have plenty of food waiting for them! If you can find some larvae and some aphids, you can collect them in a container and watch the ladybug larvae change into adult ladybugs! Just be sure to provide them with plenty of aphids and other small insects to eat.
To allow kids to see ladybugs change from larva to pupa to adult, we highly recommend the Ladybug Land kit! Also see Activity 1 in 'Ladybug Fun' for tips on finding and raising your own larvae.
We begin by brainstorming animals (I also have animal cards (information cards) that I put out as the children can use the name for spelling and see the picture to help them decide on describing words).
For lower students I will put a light x in pencil on the lines where they need to write their animal name.
Older children could write (copy or compose) a short poem under the wings.
Write riddle or curriculum related question on the wing, write the answer under the wings.
Children read the numeral, then check their answer by swinging open the wings to count the dots.
I tell them to write the name of their animal first on all the lines where it needs to be.
Draw the corresponding number of dots on the body under the wings.
It’s a fun poem to introduce describing words to students and they love writing about animals.
This allows the wings to swing open, exposing the ladybug body beneath.

  This was the meeting where we ordered live Ladybugs for the girls to release into the neighborhood to eat all the icky aphids.
 It was only drizzling when the girls arrived so we swapped the whole schedule and did the Ladybugs first.
 For those who don’t remember (or didn’t read that blog), the plan was to harvest the vegetables over the summer and give them to a local food bank for our Amazing Daisy project.  We used seed starter pellets that the girls poured water on while they were standing in line to make their shakers.
 Apparently Ladybugs don’t fly in the dark and releasing them in the late evening helps them hang around and make your garden their home.
 I know I made ladybugs out of apples and grapes, but I’m pretty sure we had other things as well.
 The entire event was scheduled later than usual in the day so that the ladybugs could be released at dusk.
 I did all these things and the ladybugs were still completely gone in two days.
 I also had pictures of ladybugs and aphids to pass around.
 There was also a small tie in to our "Using Resources Wisely" Green Petal during this session with the girls bringing in a recycled container.
 The ladybugs were pretty small.
 The girls also brought sticks, rocks and leaves that they gathered after school (and before the storm) to put in their houses.
 After, I cut the bag and sprinkled a few bugs into each of the girls’ "Houses."  I think they wound up getting about 10 each.
A little online search led me to the conclusion that ladybugs and paper wasps are hibernating in our walls, especially around the windows on the warm, southern end of the house.
Future plans include spraying the eaves for wasps in April and maybe setting up a ladybug house or something to deter the ladybugs from coming back.
I wanted to create a seal but didn’t want to damage the windows, so I cut extra large black trash bags and taped them to the walls all around the windows.

On Wednesday, it was necessary that we compare spiders to insects because our books were telling us that spiders are in fact NOT INSECTS!  What??!! How can that be??!!  We looked at diagrams of spiders and insects, read some more books, and then completed a Venn Diagram to sort information.
Our spider learning has officially begun!  We spent the week digging into nonfiction texts… asking questions, locating facts/details, looking at nonfiction text features such as labeling, diagrams, and a glossary.
 We learned lots of new vocabulary words, did some comparing/contrasting, and even touched on parts of speech!  Needless to say, after reading creepy crawly books everyday, I most definitely had a nightmare about HUGE spiders biting me all over last night.
 For example, one of the questions was "Are spiders predators or prey?"  Well, I could have easily told them that they are BOTH predators and prey, but the book we read only touched on spiders as predators, so we left that alone until we learned more later that week.
 After building numbers, making a model, singing a place value song, and making a number it was time to work on identifying numbers with place value blocks.
 This will be my 5th year to teach about spiders, and now I’m more excited than ever because I finally have a go-to resource with all of my favorite spider activities!  I take two weeks in October (but really you don’t have to do it around Halloween… it just works for us!) and devote those two weeks to SPIDER WEEK(s).
 We practiced reading our numbers to our partners AND to the class (This helped me know who can read 4-digit numbers immediately… HUGE eye opener!!!).
Do you teach about creepy, crawly creatures in your classroom??!!  I may not teach science, but I sure do love to integrate nonfiction books about animals any and every chance I get.
 I did something a little different this year… I had my students first cut out the labels and just place the labels where they thought they belonged.
 I told the kids our little gang would be adding a new buddy this week, so they were already prepared to give a name!  We took suggestions (Thing, Thor, Thea, Thumb, and Thar) then voted.
 This is the first place value pal my students have made.
After my 2nd class, my chart was all kinds of FULL!  We didn’t answer any questions that we couldn’t "prove" yet with our reading.
 I did this so my kiddos would have a visual and something to refer back to while studying 4-digit numbers this week.
 We learn all kinds of interesting facts while also working on identifying details, distinguishing facts from opinions, discussing fiction vs.
 Then, I gave each student an index card with the place value lines drawn.
 So, my students had to make predictions based on the words they did know, and the information we had read.
This year was hosted by Kristi and Lydia and they did an amazing job! Wonderful appetizers, an incredible dinner and a beautiful and delicious dessert.
Holly Fast approaching, or already passed, the middle of my life! Married to my sweetie of 27 years, mom to a beautiful daughter, Ashleigh and wonderful son, Tyler.
The Starbucks tree, that has hardly any room for anything ! When I first did this tree, 15 or so years ago, I just had the "popcorn" balls, and little Starbucks sample cups the I hung all over.
And when those little vintage trailers started coming out? Oh my ! Now instead of the cups, I have real Starbucks ornaments  and cute cards from all over.
I did a few crafts this year too ! I’ve had these Starbucks cards for a few years now.
I wanted a little decor for my guest room so I took some frames and painted them, and then I strung the cards and taped the string to the frames.
Last Friday, Starbucks offered coffee for 12cents if you were wearing blue and green.
12 is my favorite number, so I have the 12th man jersey and I wear it faithfully every Friday and Sunday.
