green lacewing containerPreferred Food: Aphids, Mealybugs, Spider Mites, Leafhopper Nymphs, Caterpillar Eggs, Scale, Thrips, and Whiteflies.

Method of shipment, biology and release rates: The adults are sold in containers (buckets) of 100 or 500 and should be released the day of reciept. Adult Green Lacewings are minor pollinators and do not provide active pest control themselves.

To Release: We do not advise refrigerating the adults. If immediate release is not possible, moisten the accompanying sponge in water and replace it. Release as soon as possible, hopefully no later than 24 hours after receipt. To release, remove the top screen and use a piece of cardboard to regulate the amounts released throughout the target area. The eggs already deposited in the shipping container can be released in the target area by cutting the container.

For severe infestations - Repeat releases every 7-10 days.

Availability: year-round.
