Green Lacewing Preferred food: aphids, mealybugs, spider mites, leafhopper nymphs, moth eggs, scale, thrips, and whiteflies.
Method of shipment: Green Lacewing are shipped as eggs packed in bran via USPS.
- In gardens and greenhouses, release eggs at approximately 1,000 eggs per 2,000 sq. ft.
- For farms release 5,000 to 50,000 per acre depending upon infestation.
Once the larvae emerge, they will feed for 1-3 weeks before they become adults. The adults are minor pollinators and eat pollen, honey, and nectar.
To establish a preventative colony, release green lacewing eggs several times at intervals of at least one week. For best results, begin releasing at the beginning of each growing season at 1 - 2 week intervals. For best pricing, order under our weekly shipment programs. For program pricing, a minimum order of three shipments is required (set quantity to 3). If you are interested in more than a 3 shipment program, please call us at 1-800-827-2847.
For severe infestations - Repeat releases every 7-14 days.
