Lost Ladybug Search at Quail Hill Farm: All Ages

  • South Fork Natural History Museum 377 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike Bridgehampton, NY, 11932 United States (map)

The Peconic Land Trust and the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) have teamed up with Dr. Leslie Allee of Cornell University for our annual search for “lost ladybugs.” Help us look for the extremely rare 9-spotted ladybug, New York State’s official insect, and aid in Dr. Allee’s research. Native ladybugs were once very common but are now extremely rare, while ladybugs from other parts of the world have greatly increased. You will search for and gently capture ladybugs at the farm to be identified and then released.
