 "APHID LION" - $27.89 1000 ct Green Lacewing Egg Pack

After a few days, the eggs hatch and tiny larvae emerge which are also known as"aphid lions" because of their voracious appetite. There is no other better predator known to consume vast quantities of eggs and the soft bodies of aphids, mealy-bugs, spider mites, leafhopper nymphs, caterpillar eggs, scales, thrips, and white-flies. The larvae attack the eggs of most pests and, if the bodies are not to hard and fast moving, will attack the adult pest stage as well. Use lacewing eggs/larvae for greenhouses and gardens. Larvae will only feed for 1-3 weeks before they become adults (eating only nectar and honeydew). Use approximately 10 lacewing eggs/larvae per plant or 1000 eggs per 200 square feet. After a few days, the eggs hatch and tiny larvae emerge. The larvae are gray-brown in color and newly hatch are very tiny. Similar in appearance to an alligator with pincers, the lacewing larvae vigorously attacks its prey, injects a paralyzing venom, and draws out the body fluids of its helpless victim. Depending on climate conditions, the adults will live for about four to six weeks, feeding only on nectar, pollen and honeydew. If these food sources are not avalable, it will simply leave the area and lay its eggs elsewhere. Green lacewing eggs are shipped in bran or rice hulls and packed with moth eggs for food. The best time to release is early morning or later afternoon. Never release in the heat of the day. For best results, immediate use is advised however, when release is inconvenient, they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. Warmer temperatures will speed up their emergence and newly hatched lacewing larvae are hungry and will cannibalize each other if they are not released quickly. 


"The Pest Police"  - 1,000 Ladybugs $31.76

Ladybugs will feed on other pests, but are best known to eliminate aphid populations. They search all day from dawn to dusk for food. Ladybugs are shipped in the adult stage and is one of the most effective economically important insect predator known. Ordering fresh healthy ladybugs and have them delivered directly to you is best. Extensive travel stresses out the ladybugs, robbing them of their vigor, aphid eating and reproduction capabilities.  The larvae consume up to 400 aphids at a rate of 50-60 aphids a day in later stages. If food supplies are short they will cannibalize each other. Larvae live for three weeks before pupating. After 2-5 days adults emerge and continue to feed. Pollen and nectar are necessary for maturation of newly emerged lady bug adults, particularly before a winter hibernation season.  They are attracted to specific types of plants. The most popular ones have umbrella shaped flowers such as fennel, dill, cilantro, caraway, angelica, tansy, wild carrot & yarrow. Other plants that also attract ladybugs include cosmos (especially the white ones), coreopsis, and scented geraniums, dandelions. Adults can survive on pollen and nectar for limited periods, but a supply of aphids or other prey is necessary for egg production. If aphids are scarce, lady beetle adults and larvae may feed on the eggs of moths and beetles, and mites, thrips, and other small insects, as well as pollen and nectar. After you receive your ladybugs, put the bag in a cool place (refrigerator) until late in the day or early morning. Ladybugs will leave if they don't like their new home. Do not release the ladybugs during the heat of the day or while the sun is shining. They will not fly at night and need a settling down period after being handled. When releasing, gently scatter or spread them out so each ladybug can find food immediately. Sprinkle or irrigate the area before releasing, so the ladybugs will have a drink of water after their journey.  

Green Praying Mantid

"The Lovable Killer" - $ 18.65 1 egg case (200 babies)

This adored insect, praying mantis is a general predator of most pest insects, mites, eggs, or any insect in reach. Each egg case contains approximately 200 baby mantids.

Praying mantis egg cases may also be placed in the crotch of a bush or tree. Do not place on ground, as they become easy prey for ants. Releases can begin after the last frost and continue through summer. The Praying mantis is a most interesting and enjoyable beneficial insect to have around the garden and farm. It is the only known insect that can turn its head and look over its shoulder. Mantis lie in wait for their food and when close enough, snap it up with a lightning movement of their strong forelegs.  Mantis have enormous appetites, eating various aphids, leafhoppers, mosquitoes, caterpillars and other soft-bodied insects when young. Later they will eat larger insects, beetles, grasshoppers, crickets, and other pest insects. These ferocious-looking praying mantises actually make great pets. Some will even eat raw meat and insects from your fingers. With plenty to eat they usually will not stray far. If handled properly they don't bite.
