Bio AthetaSKU: 6603705
Also known as Atheta and the rove beetle, Dalotia coriaria is a fast moving, soil-dwelling predatory beetle known for its aggressive feeding behavior. This beetle spends most of it’s time in the substrate but can also fly. They have a wide range of feeding options, and in addition to thrips, they also predate shore flies, fungus gnats, and many other soil-dwelling insects. They can rapidly colonize an environment, and are an excellent preventative option for controlling many pests.

Why Use Biologicals?
One of the primary benefits of using beneficial insect release is that the process avoids chemical pest control methods such as pesticides. While pesticides are effective at controlling and eliminating pests, some plants and beneficial insects like bees can be affected negatively. Beneficial insects are a natural, organic, and environmentally sustainable way to control pests.
