we found out lady birds like to hide in small places, in the winter they like to huddle up to keep warm. Our design must take these things into account when we build our own lady bird home!
24 species of ladybirds are recognisable
ladybirds need a warm and cosy place at winter and they all snuggle up together to keep them warm
There are 42 specis of ladybirds
seven-spot ladybirds have a varied diet of small insects but favour plant-lice and aphids. they are known as the gardener's friend as they eat garden pests. the averageseven-spot will eat more than 5000 aphids in it's year-long life!
We have been looking on the Internet to find out what ladybirds eat and where they like to live. We think that they like to hide.
We have started looking on the internet to see what type of places Ladybirds like to live in and we have looked at examples of other bug hotels that you can buy. This has given us plenty of ideas!
