Biological Control

Adalia bipunctata - Ladybug is a species that feeds on the main species of aphids present in plants trees, shrubs and herbaceous.

Adult females lay their eggs in small groups near the colonies of lice. New-born larvae begin to feed on prey, starting with the closest and smallest size.

This predator is good especially in stage larvae on ornamental plants and vegetables fructicole with interventions in the most affected.

Adalia is available only in the spring, in garments of 250 larvae of the second and third age or as adults, in garments of 100.

Using adult flying is advised only for generalized introduction to green areas, while larvae, less mobile, are more suitable for attacks on the colonies of aphids located.

Like all predatory coccineele, Adalia needs a large number of prey to grow, why not yield to preventive cases.
