How It Works
Adults will search the crop to find aphid colonies. When they find the colonies they will consume many of the aphids and lay their eggs in this area. Once the eggs hatch they will go through several larval stages which are also voracious predators. In fact, the most efficient predatory stages are the L3 and L4 larval stages. Once they grow to adults they are long lived so they will continue to feed in the crop for several weeks and can lay up to 20 eggs/day. Adalia is also a generalist predator eating a wide range of pests. As long as there is plenty of food available in the crop then Adalia can establish strong populations and help to give long term control of aphids. Adalia is active from 12-13 ° C, making it an ideal aid for outdoor crops.
