What is the life cycle of a ladybug
The Life Cycle of a Ladybug by L.L. OwensThe Life Cycle of a LADYBUG by L.L. Owens is good book for the classroom because the photographs in the book are so fascinating students will turn the pages to see the photographs. The pictures all have captions that tell something about the photographs. This could activate their interest in ladybugs, science, or insects. This interest could start the student reading on their own.
The book covers the four main stages of ladybug’s life cycle. It explains why a ladybug is an insect and it lists the parts of its body. The words that might be hard for the students to pronounce or they might not know the meaning of are highlighted in green. They are in a glossary in the back of the book where they are phonetically pronounced and the meaning of the words are given.
The book has an index telling what pages in the book the words are on. The book has a web site for links about the lifecycle of the ladybug. The book has a double-page spread showing a diagram of the lifecycle of the ladybug. I would recommend this book to other teachers and students. I think the book with the great photographs and the captions invite student to look deeper or further into the life of the ladybug.

Learn About Ladybugs
Females lay their tiny eggs in yellow clusters under a leaf or stem, often near a colony of aphids tiny garden pests that damage many plants. Within a week, the eggs hatch into alligator-shaped larvae that start gobbling up aphids, tiny worms and a variety of insect eggs. Both larvae and the adults are beneficial predators in the garden. The life cycle of a ladybug egg to mature adult takes 4 to 8 weeks. As adults, most ladybugs live 1 year and can eat 5, aphids in their lifetime.

Ladybugs are known by several other names: lady beetles, ladybug beetles, and ladybird beetles. Regardless of what you call them, these beetles belong to the family Coccinellidae. All ladybugs progress through a four-stage life cycle known as complete metamorphosis. The ladybug life cycle begins with an egg. Once she has mated, the female ladybug lays a cluster of 10 to 50 eggs. She usually deposits her eggs on a plant with suitable prey for her offspring to eat when they hatch; aphids are a favorite food. Between spring and early summer, a single female ladybug can produce up to 1, eggs.
The time it takes for a ladybug egg to hatch and become an adult takes about 3 to 4 weeks depending on the weather conditions. The ladybug life cycle sure does happen fast! Ladybug eggs are very small, oval in shape and are a pale yellow color. Mother ladybugs lay their eggs usually on the undersides of leaves to keep them protected from hungry predators. She makes sure that she leaves her eggs close to a lot of food aphids so her little darlings will have plenty to eat once they hatch 3 to 5 days after she lays the eggs.
