General information

When to use Chrysopa?

Use Chrysopa for the biological control of aphids and many other pest insects, like whitefly, thrips and moth eggs. Apply when the pest first appears.

How does Chrysopa work?

Larvae of the lacewing attack prey and suck their body fluids. The remainder of the dead aphid shrivels completely and is difficult to find.
