Green Lacewing Eggs on Hanging Cards allow for easy and even release of lacewing eggs throughout the growing area. Ideal for use in orchards, indoor growing, greenhouses and row cropping. Introduce green lacewing at the first sign of pest infestation for best results. Please call us at 1-800-827-2847 to set up a recurring shipment program.

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.

Release Rates: For best results, release Green Lacewing early in the season when pest numbers are low. Make a minimum of three releases.

  • 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.
