Mealybug Killer 10 consists of 10 Cryptolaemus montrouzieri larvae. These larvae are natural predators of Mealybugs. Each larvae can consume high numbers of Mealybug. The larvae then go onto to develop into adult ladybird beetles that will also feed on Mealybugs.

Mealybugs cause damage by by sap sucking . They also produce honeydew, which sooty moulds can grow on . Plant growth can be stunted and leaves distorted. Their main characteristic is the white waxy material that covers them.

Mealybug Killer 10 provides;

  • Natural pest control of Mealybugs without the use of insecticides
  • Safe to the applicator, the plant and the environment
  • Each larva can consume up to 30 mealybugs

Mealybug Killer 10 larvae should only be introduced when temperatures are above 18.c . The best conditions for the larvae are between 22-25.c. They should only be used on indoor crops and plants.

If there are very high numbers of mealybugs present, it can be  a good idea to spray first with a physical action natural pesticide like Bug Free Natural fatty acid bug gun or SB Plant invigorator. These products  will help to weaken and kill the Mealybugs but will not leave any harmful residues for the predators.

The larvae are supplied in a small container, the larvae should be gently brushed onto the plant, as close as possible to the mealybug infestation. Do not use insecticides after they are applied.

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.
