Ladybugs | Juan Cabrillo

Intern Frank brought some ladybugs to class today and we discussed the lifecycle of these polka dotted beetles. They start as eggs, then hatch as larva, shed their skin four times before becoming a pupa and shed their skin one more time to become a ladybug. All the while they eat aphids, a tiny bug that kills our plants. We love our ladybugs!

Look at all those pupas!


I spy with my little eye a teeny tiny larva… can you find it?
