What does ADALIA BIPUNCTATA look like? 

ADALIA BIPUNCTATA, also known as the two-spotted ladybird, is a ladybird native to the Netherlands. Adult beetles are about 4 mm in size and are usually red with two black spots, but other color varieties, such as black with four orange spots, may also occur. The larvae are dark gray to black and have long legs. The eggs are elongated and yellow to orange and deposited in groups, usually on the underside of the leaves near aphid colonies

How does ADALIA BIPUNCTATA work? 

The larvae and beetles of the two-spotted ladybird completely eat aphids. Sincthe eggs are deposited close to aphid colonies, emerging larvae can immediately start eating aphids. Larvae can eat up to 100 aphids a day, which results in a clear pest decrease after a week. 

When is ADALIA BIPUNCTATA applied? 

ADALIA BIPUNCTATA is used to control many aphid species, such as lime aphid and maple aphid, and can be applied from late April/early May in lawn trees or gardens. This ladybird is also suitable for greenhouses and indoor plantings from March to October.
