Mealy Bug Control with Cryptolaemus
This sap-sucking insect is protected with white waxy threads, which often make chemical control unsuccessful. The mealybugs Planococcus citri and Pseudoccus viburnii attack a wide range of house plants and ornamentals in protected environments.
Control With Cryptolaemus
The predatory ladybird is a specialist in clearing mealybug populations at temperatures over 20°C.
Use regular introductions between June and August for effective control.
