Can I keep a ladybug as a temporary pet? A. Keeping a ladybug as a pet to observe will be fun. You can house your ladybug in a bug box or terrarium. Keep the foliage moist, or place a damp paper towel inside so the ladybug can get a drink. You can feed your ladybug moistened raisins or other sweet, non-acidic fruits. This will help maintain their fat reserves until you are ready to release the ladybug in spring.
.I would like to thank all my friends who cared and stuck by me during the Sydney Australia hostage situation. Who worried and prayed for my sons continued safety and those of the hostages. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Ivet
