We tested to see which combination of Mello Yello, and either salt, sugar, or water ladybugs liked best. We conducted our experiment by putting Mello Yello and either salt, water, or sugar in a Petri dish. We place two ladybugs in each dish. They hung out in the dish for about a minute and slowly approached the Mellow Yello. We watched them drink for 15 minutes at the most. Our experiment showed that they like the Mello Yello with sugar the best. The next afternoon I checked on our ladybugs, and found that they all lived.
