Delphastus catalinae is a predatory beetle that targets many species of whitefly, including tobacco/silverleaf/sweet potato whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) and greenhouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariprum). Delphastus are very successful in controlling whitefly hotspots in a variety of crops.
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.
