Details

Lacewing Larvae (Chrysopa) The big winged and golden eyed Chrysopa carnea, better known as green lacewing, often occurs spontaneously in greenhouses and open fields. The adult green lacewing is not a predator but feeds on nectar, honeydew and pollen. However, the larvae are extremely greedy and very efficient in hot spots. One larva can eat up to 50 aphids per day. Chrysopa larvae also feed on other insects like mealy bugs, red spider mites, thrips, white flies and small caterpillars. Chrysopa carnea is applicable in different vegetable, fruit and ornamental crops, especially with a high temperature variation and/or changing relative humidity, as its activity hardly depends on temperature and does not depend on relative humidity.
