Green Lacewing Hanging Release packs make application of lacewing eggs simple and easy! The hanging release pack is a thin paper container designed to hang from branches or stapled in place. Lacewing eggs are placed inside the container where they are separate from predators, sheltered from the elements and secured in one location. Hanging release packs are ideal for use in areas with high wind, when ants are present, in small greenhouses and for localized releases.

Green Lacewing Preferred Food: aphids, mealybugs, spider mites, leafhopper nymphs, moth eggs, scale, thrips, and whiteflies.

Optimal Temperatures: 67-90°F, RH >30%

Life Cycle & Behavior: Lacewing eggs hatch within 3-10 days of receipt depending on temperature and humidity in the release area. Once hatched, lacewing larvae feed for 2-3 weeks on a variety of soft-bodied insects. Larvae are recognizable by their prominent mandibles (mouthparts), alligator-like appearance and pale coloration with dark markings. The larvae molt as they grow and mature through 3 instar stages. Pupation occurs in silken cocoons on the undersides of leaves or under loose bark. Green lacewing will overwinter in the pupal stage in cooler climates. Adults emerge from the cocoons with large veined ("lacy") wings ready to mate and lay more eggs. Adult green lacewings feed on pollen, nectar and honeydew while aiding in pollination. The complete life cycle lasts roughly 30 days.
