Bug Babies

The praying mantis  babies were born! 


They look like little mosquito's !

We set them free, because apparently you have to or they are so hungry they start killing each other!  That I didn't know.   We are ordering 1,500 ladybugs and building some ladybug homes !  Also on the list are  more praying mantis eggs.  I am  all about natural solutions, rather than chemicals being sprayed in  my yard .  

When you make butterfly and ladybug houses, you put a beneficial lure in the boxes that make them set up shop and stay in your yard!  I think that is really interesting.   

The cocoons are formed for the butterflies! 

 Oh how I love this time of year!  

A nook I am wanting to put in  my yard under my trellis.  Climbing of my favorites!

We are leaving to go pet some baby animals!  Lions, panthers, monkeys!  I will take pics!  So excited.

Have a wonderful Weekend!

I could just imaging my 10 year old going nuts over those praying mantis. We'll have to try that some time. Love this time of year too!
