Delphastus Pusillus Ladybird Beetles - 25 Live Adults

Delphastus is a small, shiny, black beetle, about one quarter the size of a ladybug, which feeds on several species of whitefly including greenhouse, sweetpotato (silverleaf) and avocado whitefly. If whitefly are not present they will also feed on spider mites. Both the adult beetle and larvae are predators and will eat whitefly eggs and larvae, but not adult whiteflies.

Each container includes 25 live adults.

Application: For Sweet Potato and Silverleaf whitefly control, make six independent Whitefly Predator releases, two weeks apart at the rate of 300 to 500 predators per 1,000 square feet of greenhouse area.

Simply shake them out of the container they are shipped in, onto plant foliage. Best results are obtained when temperatures are kept between 65 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
