Set up a ladybird friendly home and see right inside their fascinating world! Our ladybird world kit has been specially designed by naturalist Nick Baker.

This kit is a hands-on guide for budding naturalists and contains the equipment you need to observe and study the fascinating life of ladybirds. It’s designed to be fun and informative for kids of all ages.

“Ladybirds belong to a family of beetles called the Coccinellidae (which means dressed in red). We have 47 species in the UK and of these around 26 types are recognisable as ladybirds, being brightly coloured and spotty.  Inside this kit box is everything you need to be able to set about answering the other questions and in doing so getting to know your ladybirds much better.” Nick Baker

When is the best time to set up my tank? The best time to set up your tank is in spring and summer months when ladybirds are active.  Is it cruel to keep ladybirds? No, not if you take care of them properly as described in the instruction booklet. Keeping ladybirds is fun and educational but remember they are dependent on you for their wellbeing. Release them back to the wild when you no longer want to study or observe them or are having difficulty finding food.

Kit contains:

  • Clear tank and lid
  • Specimen tubes
  • Paintbrush
  • Tweezers
  • Field lens
  • Tube holder
  • Instruction manual

Everything you need to get you started. All you have to do is search the garden for some ladybirds.

Don’t forget to always return your finds back to their natural habitat once you’ve finished.

Age: 5+ (adult supervision is recommended)
