Cryptolaemus Montrouzieri - Predatory ladybird, tub contains 25

Mite Munchers

  • £28.80


Type: Small (4-5 mm) Australian ladybird. The larvae looks like a large segmented Mealybug & may be seen walking over plants.

How it works: Adults lay eggs into Mealybug egg masses, larvae develop & are predatory on all stages of the Mealybug.

Species controlled: The larvae feed on all species of mealybug but adults need egg producing species for egg laying.

When to use: Apply at first signs of infestation. Consider 3 applications of SB Plant Invigorator at 3 day intervals to reduce population prior to introduction of Cryptolaemus.

Rates of use: 2-3 ladybirds per 1 m2on infested plants, repeat at 2 week intervals until predators are established.
