Product Overview

The Koppert Chrysopa Lacewings 500 ml. (428) contains 1,000 second stage larvae Chrysoperla carnea (lacewing) mixed with buckwheat. It effectively targets aphids and many other insects like moth eggs, thrips and whiteflies. The lacewing's mode of action is attacking a prey and sucking out its body fluids. Once an aphid is dead, its remainder will be totally shriveled and will be hard to find. For proper application, make sure to rotate the bottle and shake it gently before use. Enforce the material evenly on diseased leaves. For heavy curative treatments, add some buckwheat shells to areas where most aphids are seen. You can spread Chrysopa on the leaves, rockwoll block or in DIBOX application boxes.
