Chrysoperla carnea is an aphid predator, and can help to control other pests like white fly or thrips. Only the larvae of the Chrysoperla carnea are active predators. In case of lack of aphids, C. carnea can survive eating mites, thrips and small lepidoptera.
Release 10 – 20 ind/m2 for several weeks, until de aphid hot spots are controlled.
Dosage can vary depending on the crop and the level of the pest. Consult the recommended dose with an Agrobío field advisor.
Chrysoperla carnea is used in several horticultural, ornamental and fruit crops.
Open the multicells to spread the needed amount of larvae inside the greenhouse. Shake carefully to drop the larvae on the infected plants. Spread the larvae all over the crop, or in the most infected areas, early in the morning or at sunset.
Keep the bottle horizontally and at a temperature of 8-10ºC. Do not break the cold chain in all the transport and storage process. Do not store the product after 48 hours of receipt, and never expose it to sunlight or pesticides.
