Product Details

When to use Cryptobug?

Use Cryptobug for biological control of many mealybug species in all stages.

How does Cryptobug work?

Predatory beetles and larvae eat the mealybugs completely.

Application Cryptobug

  • Apply Cryptobug on rock wool slabs for general introduction, or in Diboxes close to or at a hotspot
  • Place among infected leaves
  • Apply in the evening

Best working conditions Cryptobug

The minimum temperature for successful use of Cryptobug is 16°C. However, as Cryptolaemus favors high temperatures and relative humidity, Cryptobug is at its most effective at temperatures between 25°C and 28°C. Beetles are more mobile then larvae and therefore more useful for general introductions or in high crops. When possible, use larvae for hotspot treatment.

Storage and transport

  • Keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Transport and store at 43-50°F.
  • Use within 18 hours of receipt.
