CHRYSOPA contains larvae of the lacewing Chrysoperla carnea. The larvae are extremely voracious: if they cannot find enough food; they will soon start to feed on each other. They consume many different aphid species. In addition; they also feed on mealybugs; thrips and moth eggs.

How does CHRYSOPA work?

As soon as the larvae are released; they start feeding on aphids or other prey. Even though the larvae are rather mobile; they do not disperse over long distances. Therefore; CHRYSOPA is best applied to remove local aphid hot spots. Remnants of the attacked aphids are difficult to find; because they completely shrivel. Lace wing pupae are rarely spotted in the greenhouse: an adult lace wing has the tendency to fly away without having deposited any eggs.

How to combine CHRYSOPA

CHRYSOPA is great to combine with parasitoids. They complement each other; since parasitoids are great long-distance searchers and focus more on the dispersed aphids. For example APHIPAR or APHILIN are good choices.
