Yes! You must provide water throughout the ladybug life cycle. Remove the magnification cap from the Ladybug Land. Using the pipette, place a couple of drops of water onto the sponge in the crater every other day. Keep the sponge moist at all times, but don’t over water! Ladybugs can drown in standing water. If you see condensation on the sides of the Ladybug Land, do not add any more water until the condensation disappears.
