Sierteelt biologische bestrijding

Floriculture

Every flowering plant is different and it of essential importance to keep that in mind when applying biological control. We breed a range of unique biological control agents suitable for the application in floriculture.

Floriculture

Different plants are sensitive to a different range of pest insects, and it is crucial to keep that in mind when you release biological control agents. While sometimes it is essential to regularly introduce products, other times, especially when a cultivation is present for a long time, it is beneficial to release insects that can establish in the cultivation. We have plenty of experience with our products in different floriculture-related situations. In accordance with the grower, we set up a sustainable biological control program and support the implementation.

Vegetable cultivation

Crops differ much from each other, and that is crucial to keep in mind when applying biological control in vegetable cultivation. We have a range of products specifically selected for application in vegetable cultivation.

Vegetable cultivation

It also applies to vegetable cultivation: every crop is different and it is important to pay attention to that when composing a biological control strategy. For slow-growing crops it can be advantageous to select biocontrol agents that establish themselves, while for fast-growing crops it is beneficial to release regularly. Our experience in the application of biocontrol agents in vegetable cultivation allows us to provide growers with a custom biological control program.

Botanische tuin biologische bestrijding

Botanical garden

Even in environments where different plant species co-exist, biological control can be successfully applied. With the right set of biocontrol agents, such an environment is actually very beneficial.

Botanical garden

Plant species differ greatly from one another in their sensitivity to pest insects. The more plant species are brought together, the more pest insects have to be controlled. How beautiful would it be to have a standing army of biological control agents that attack at the first sight of a pest insect. Exactly this can happen if you apply biological control to such a diverse environment as a botanical garden. In general, the plants remain in such a place for a longer time, which makes it worthwhile to build up a population of biological control agents.

The diversity of a botanical garden is a great challenge for us: it requires many different specific products that have to cooperate in order to achieve a great result. We breed a large part of the insects ourselves. That is why we know exactly which insects to apply in a certain situation, which is a key to success.

Our products can not only be applied in botanical gardens, but also in other (semi) tropical and diverse environments, such as greenhouses in zoos or tropical butterfly gardens. We would love to teach you how to recognize the pest insects, which products are best to control those insects and to see if the natural enemies are doing a good job.

Binnentuin biologische bestrijding

Indoor garden

Plants in an indoor garden grown under unnatural conditions, which makes them extra sensitive to pest insects. Biological control in an indoor garden makes sure the plants are happy and healthy!

Indoor garden

Spider mite, thrips, mealybugs… They are examples of persistent pests that commonly occur in indoor gardens. Not all biological control agents function properly under the unnatural conditions of an indoor garden, which makes it a perfect challenge for us! Over the years we have gained experience with the application of our products in many different indoor gardens, ranging from offices and malls to pools and hospitals. We can set up a tailor-made biological control program for any type of indoor garden. You do not have to be afraid that people will be harmed by the biological control agents: they are 100% safe for people, do not sting or bite and do not transmit diseases. Only when you search very thoroughly you can locate them on the plants.

We prefer to closely cooperate with a gardener or interior landscaper when we apply biological control in an indoor garden. Together we will set up a custom biological control strategy. We supply the products and visit regularly to follow the process and make plans for the future.

Openbaar groen biologische bestrijding

Public green

In spring, lime trees and maple trees can be infested with aphids, leading to serious nuisance in public spaces. Fortunately, we have a selection of biological control agents that can prevent this problem.

Public green

We have several products that are very suitable for the application in public green. The indigenous ladybird ADALIA BIPUNCTATA is one of our best products and a great example. This ladybird is voracious, consuming numerous aphids per day. They feel at home in trees, such as maple and lime. We supply these ladybirds to numerous organizations, ranging from municipalities to gardeners.

Another interesting product is the ladybird EXOCHOMUS QUADRIPUSTULATUS: a predatory beetle that is specialized in the control of hydrangea scale. Hydrangea scales can be recognized as the white bugs that reside on the leaves of lime trees or horse chestnut trees. We breed these beetles ourselves and supply them to municipalities, gardeners and private customers.

Boomkwekerij biologische bestrijding

Tree nursery

Tree growers are confronted with all kinds of pest insects that threaten their trees. In addition to the promotion of naturally occurring control agents, we have a range of unique products specifically selected for tree growers.

Tree nursery

We have seen inspiring examples of naturally occurring insects that can be stimulated to help tree growers: when you release ladybirds or parasitoids, beneficial insects that are near, such as hover flies and lacewings, come out to help. We like to help growers recognize these beneficial insects and teach how to treasure them. Experience shows that this helps a growers to gain trust in biological control.

In addition to the promotion of naturally occurring insects, we have a range of products that are very effecting at controlling persistent pests in tree nurseries. To prevent damage, great timing is essential. We help growers to scout for pest insects and advise them on the best moment to release biological control agents.

Onderzoekskas biologische bestrijding

Research greenhouse

As a researcher, the last thing you want for your plants is to be infested by pest insects. After all, this can seriously impair the results of your experiments. Biological control is a great solution to control pest insects in a research greenhouse.

Research greenhouse

Of many different plant species we roughly know to which pest insects they are sensitive. This helps us to set up a biological control strategy in a research greenhouse. Experience shows that dose and frequency of biological control agents in a research greenhouse differ from a production greenhouse. Depending on the experimental set up and goal of the experiments, it can be necessary to introduce natural enemies on a very regular basis. Introducing preventively instead of waiting for the pest to arrive can be a very valuable strategy. Regular consultation with the researchers is essential to make the right choices. Since we produce many of our products ourselves, we can easily change a product to fit the needs of an experiment. Biological control requires a custom approach, especially in a research greenhouse.

Fruitteelt biologische bestrijding

Fruit grower

Fruit growers are confronted with a range of harmful insects that threaten to spoil their fruits. A great strategy is to promote the beneficial insects that are already present and complement this with the release of biological control agents.

Fruit grower

All of us set high standards for the quality of our fruit. The fruits have to be undamaged and cannot contain chemical residues. That is quite the challenge for growers, who are confronted with numerous pest insects that harm the fruits. Fortunately, there are many naturally occurring insects that can be promoted to lend a hand to the grower. We can help fruit growers to promote these insects and supply them with products that are specifically selected for fruit cultivation. The predatory beetle EXOCHOMUS QUADRIPUSTULATUS for example, effectively controls woolly apple aphid in apple orchards. For berry plantations, we have the parasitoid COCCOPHAGUS SCUTELLARIS and the predatory beetle RHYZOBIUS LOPHANTHAE who control a range of soft scales and armoured scales.
