What are ADALIA BIPUNCTATA larvae?

ADALIA BIPUNCTATA larvae are the voracious larvae of the indigenous two-spotted lady beetle Adalia bipunctata. The larvae look very different from the adult beetles: they are grey to black; elongated insects with six long legs with which they swiftly move over the plant.

How do ADALIA BIPUNCTATA larvae work?

The larvae are effective against many diferent aphid species; such as lime aphid; maple aphid; rose aphid; foxglove aphid; potato aphid and green peach aphid.
As soon as the bag is opened and attached to the plant; the larvae exit the bag and start their search for aphids. The larvae require a lot of food for their development: they consume hundreds of aphids. The pest population quickly reduces: you can see an effect after only one week. The larvae molt regularly and their shedded skins remain behind on the plant. These skinds can easily be found: they look like small; black flakes. Be aware: these are not dead larvae!

How to combine ADALIA BIPUNCTATA larvae

In greenhouses and indoor gardens ADALIA larvae match rather good with parasitoids such as APHIPAR and APHISCOUT. The larvae prey upon the hot spots of the pest whereas the specialized parasitoids are far better searchers and will be superior in finding aphids all over the plants.
