One solution, among many, involving recoding. There is a function in
package QCA called recode()
(similar, but in my opinion more flexible than the same function recode()
in package car)

> library(QCA)
> ind.davis$Ageclass <- recode(ind.davis$Ageclass, "adult = Adult; Juvanile
 = Juvenile; sub-adult = Sub-adult", as.factor.result = TRUE)

Should work, although untested (your example is not replicable).

Hope this helps,
