Ladybugs a guest blog by Marysa my 10 year old daughter


   Last night at about 8:30pm my family and I let out our ladybugs for our garden. They were crawling everywhere. They started mating and finding a good place to sleep through the night. I watched them longest with my mom's light on her phone. Most of them stayed in the container all night. The females were attracted to the squash. The males were attracted to eggplant. Both male and female were attracted to the large spinach. We had bought 1500 ladybugs and all of them were there in the morning. They all laid there eggs during the morning through afternoon. They also are laying their last eggs right now for the last few ladybugs. We had many ladybug larva before. They are big black larva with an orange dot on them.I can't wait to see them hatch. I will post about the larva in a few weeks when they hatch. Hope you liked my guest blog. Thank you for reading.
