Both the larvae and adults attack all stages of mealybugs. If food is scarce they will eat soft scales and aphids. Introduce from late Spring to early Autumn.
When applying Cryptolaemus in greenhouses, introduce 2-3 adults/m². It is best applied during a cool time of the day. The presence of ants in the crop adversely affects the work of Cryptolaemus. Ants are very keen on the mealy bug's honeydew and therefore protect them against this predator.
One pack treats up to 10 sq.m
