Chrysopa rufilabris
Chrysopa-System: Larvae

Chrysopa-E-System: Eggs

Chrysopa or green lacewing larvae are voracious predators of many aphid species. They can eat up to 50 aphids per day and a total of 600 during their entire development. The last larval stage is the most voracious one, responsible for 75% of total consumption.

Adult females search for large aphid colonies to lay their eggs. One female can lay an average of 20 eggs per day and up to 400 eggs during its lifespan. Only the larval stages feed on aphids. Adults can feed on nectar, honeydew and pollen. Chrysopa can also be used to control mealybugs, spider mites, whiteflies, small caterpillars, moth eggs and difficult to control thrips.
