Anthocoris nemoralis is a predatory bug, from family Anthocoridae. Its main preys are the different species of psylla such as the pear psylla (Cacopsylla pyri), the cercis psylla (Cacopsylla pulchella), the fig psylla (Macrohomotoma gladiata) and the olive psylla (Euphyllura olivina). In the absence of psylla, Anthocoris nemoralis can feed on other insects like thrips, aphids, mites and lepidoptera eggs.
Apply preventively 1500 – 2000 bugs/ha divided into 2 – 4 releases in consecutive weeks.
Dosage can vary depending on the crop and the level of the pest. Consult the recommended dose with an Agrobío field advisor.
Pear tree, ornamentals (park and gardens). Generally, Anthocoris nemoralis can be released in crops where the psyllids could be a threat.
