What is Chrysopa, and when should I use it?
If you are trying to get rid of aphids and other pests, like mealybugs, Echinothrips and butterfly and moth eggs, then Chrysopa is the solution you need.
How does Chrysopa get rid of pests?
Chrysoperla carnea are small, and will search your plants for pests to feed on. When they find a pest, they kill and eat the adults and larvae. Once out of food the predatory mites will perish, which normally takes 3 to 4 weeks, so once a month treatment is ideal.
How to use Chrysopa?
- Shake the bottle gently before use
- Apply on infested leaves
- For hotspot treatments, apply Chrysopa directly in the heavily affected areas
- The product can be applied on the rock wool slabs, on leaves, via Dibox application boxes or distributed by Air(o)bug
The dosage of Chrysopa depends on climate, crop and pest density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start introduction as soon as the first pests are detected in the crop. Introduction rates typically range from 2-20 per m2/release.
Releases should be made in infested areas only and repeated at weekly intervals until control is achieved. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
Best working conditions
Relative humidity should be above 75% and the temperature above 20°C/68°F for at least some hours of the day.
Biological beneficial bugs have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on their quality. In case you do need to store Thripor-I, please follow the instructions below.
