Package

Dicyphus is a predatory bug and generalist that is primarily used to control whiteflies, but can also feed on mites, thrips, and moth eggs. It should be noted that Dicyphus are omnivorous, and require plants to complete their lifecycle. If pest populations are low they may feed on plants to the point of damage, or target other beneficial insects. It is recommended for hot spot management, and that supplementary food such as Artemia be provided.

Whiteflies, mites, thrips

  • 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.
