DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT
- Bottle of 500 bugs (adults and nymphs)
Nesidiocoris tenuis is a predatory bug from family Miridae. Adults and nymphs eat white flies (Bemisia tabaci and Trialeurodes vaporariorum) and can control other pests like leafminers, thrips, red spider or Lepidoptera eggs. They prefer to eat eggs and larvae. This species bites the prey and sucks the content.
Release from 0.5 to 1.5 ind/m2, depending on the crop and the season.
Dosage can vary depending on the crop and the level of the pest. Consult the recommended dose with an Agrobío field advisor.
Nesidiocoris tenuis is used in tomato and aubergine crops. In spring-summer the development is ideal, in autumn it slows down and in winter it can be used in heated greenhouses. This species can damage the crops in case of lack of preys. For this reason it is necessary to monitor the predator/prey ratio .
Before opening the bottle, set it horizontally and rotate to mix the content. Spread it over the leaves or in small boxes. To control the white fly, it is recommended to combine this species with EREMIcontrol and/or ENCARcontrol.
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.
