Eggs, larvae and adult ladybirds
This ladybug kit allows you to choose to receive them in 3 ways.
A: Ladybird eggs
Sent by 100, they are delivered in strips that must be hung in their plants. Of course, they’ll have to wait a few days for them to hatch before the action begins.
The eggs have two advantages:
Your plants will benefit from a longer period of protection as the insect will be effective at all stages of development, first as a larva and then as an adult.
The larvae of the eggs are more resistant because they will be born directly in their natural environment.
B: Ladybird larvae
Sent by 80, the action of the larvae is immediate as soon as they establish themselves in the plantations. Its application is more delicate, should be done with a brush for example and deposited directly on the plant to be protected.
C: The adult ladybird
Sent by 20, their action is immediate as soon as they get started in the fields. As for the larvae, their application will be delicate.
Eggs: 50 to 100 per tree
Larvae: 20 to 40 larvae per tree or 1 to 2 larvae per aphid colony
Adults: 10 to 20 ladybugs per tree or 1 to 2 adults per aphid colony.
Do not use any chemical or phytosanitary product with the ladybugs (eggs, larvae and adults) before, during and after placing them in your crops.
