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.
