Observing Bugs
If you plan to observe bugs over a period of time, please make sure to feed them properly. Do not keep them caged any longer then you have need to.
Here's a few feeding tips:

Ants - drops of honey or bits of raw meat, apples and bananas.
Grasshoppers - fruit and vegetables
Praying Mantis - fruit flies
Lady Bugs and Beetles - fruit and boiled potato
Crickets - raw vegetables, fruit, dog biscuits and crackers
Bees and Butterflies - should be set free to find flower nectar.
All insects need water. Place a few drops of water on a leaf, inside the cage, daily.
