4 Did you know that a female ladybug can lay up to 300 eggs at one time? Well she can. Stage 1 begins the day our mom lays the eggs and lasts until we hatch. Some eggs hatch in 2 days but others need as long as 5 days. Stage 2 begins once we have hatched. We are now called larvae. We remain in this stage for up to 21 days.
