Outdoor Hour Challenge – Insect Lacewing


Outdoor Hour Challenge
Insect Wings- Lacewing

Use the ideas in this challenge to look for lacewings to view up close.

“Flitting leisurely through the air on her green gauze wings, the lacewing seems like a filmy leaf, broken loose and drifting on the breeze. But there is a purpose in her flight, and through some instinct she is enabled to seek out an aphis-ridden plant or tree, to which she comes as a friend in need.”

“Look for the lacewing on any plant infested with plant lice, and the lacewing’s egg or eggshells on the long stalks are also readily found.”
