Economical and better biocontrol of aphids, mealybugs and Echinothrips
Aphids and mealybugs are difficult to control and an increasing problem in many crops in which hotspots can grow explosively. By using an earlier phase of lacewing - the natural enemy of aphids, mealybugs and Echinothrips – growers can now tackle hotspots of these harmful pests more effectively and economically. Continuous R&D has resulted in a new product marketed under the name, Chrysopa-E, which uses the egg stage of the lacewing, Chrysoperla carnea, instead of the larval stage used previously, to greater effect.
You can find everything you need to know about Chrysopa-E in our FAQ. On this page you find listed questions and answers about Chrysopa-E in general, their application, formulation and packaging and handling and storage.Download FAQ
Advantages of Chrysopa-E
Due to the attractive price of Chrysopa-E, it is possible to use many more beneficials and thus gain better control of pests, with a better return on investment. With Chrysopa-E, you have a very large army of biological control agents ready for action. Chrysopa-E eats all types of aphids, mealybugs and Echinothrips, so this is a natural enemy with a big menu in that respect.
Chrysopa-E can be produced at much lower production costs, so you can use many more beneficials at less expense. It is possible for you to use many more beneficials and thus gain better control of pests, with a better return on investment. Chrysopa-E is also suitable for long-term preventive use due to lower costs with less need for chemical corrections that may disrupt the total biological system in the greenhouse.
Exceptional broad diet
The existing control products for aphids (parasitic wasps) often tackle only one specific aphid species, while Chrysopa-E eats all types of aphids, mealybugs and Echinothrips, so this is a natural enemy with a big menu in that respect. Chrysopa-E is suitable for a wide range of crops and Koppert has conducted tests in various crops with good results.
Extreme number of predators
By using an earlier phase of lacewing - the natural enemy of aphids, mealy bugs and echinothrips – growers can now tackle hotspots of these harmful pests more effectively and economically. While the larval product is supplied in a 6-litre bucket containing 10,000 larvae, the eggs are delivered in a 90 ml canister containing 100,000 eggs, so there is a huge gain in terms of transport volume and the supply chain is more sustainable.
