7853B Green Lacewings 4,000 count (R3853 4000)



"Aphid Lions"

Control aphids and other small, soft-bodied pests such as whitefly. The lacewing larva is a general-purpose feeder. If it can get the bug in its mouth, it will devour it! The larvae do all the work. In 2-3 weeks, they hatch into adult lacewings that eat only pollen and nectar. We recommend 1,000 eggs for an 8' x 12' greenhouse.

Create a favorable home for your Beneficials ahead of timeā€¦
Reminder-- Beneficial Insects don't tolerate most pesticides very well, so it's very important not to apply residual pesticides (such as Malathion and Sevin) for at least a month before using them. While you're waiting out this month period use soapy water sprays (such as Safers) or Stiky Traps right up to the day you let out the beneficials. Also botanical sprays (derived from Pyrethrin and Rotenone, for example) can be used with a one week wait afterwards. The small amount of time you spend creating more favorable conditions for Beneficial Insects will be well worth your while!

Note: Sorry, not shipped to Canada or Hawaii.

Shipping Note: Two day orders received by noon Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday usually ship that same day. (We do not want to delay your in route shipment over the weekend.) Thursday, Friday and weekend orders are usually shipped the following Monday, so that your bugs arrive fresh and ready to go to work!
