General, All-Purpose Pest Controls

Second lines of offense for use with more targeted controls.

Praying Mantis

Fun garden pets, Mantids eat anything & everything they can catch!

Praying Mantis (Tenodera sinensis) make wonderful backyard pets, and constantly entertain while they eat insects all Summer long.

Mantids wait in quiet ambush for hours at a time. When an insect comes wandering by they jump out and attack, usually biting the neck first. They are strictly carnivorous and will eat almost any insect they can overcome.

At rest, Mantids hold their spiny forearms together giving the appearance they are praying. In this posture they are capable of quickly striking prey and holding it in their powerful grip .

Application: Eggs store in the refrigerator until ready for hatching, which takes 2-8 weeks of warm weather. Each egg hatches 100-200 mantids, which continue to grow throughout Summer and reach 3-5" long by Fall.

Available from mid-December to mid-July, they should be used by Aug. 15 for a proper hatch.

Pirate Bugs

Mainly for use against Thrips, Aphids, and Mites.
The newest Thrips control, Pirate Bugs (Orius insidiosis) also eat Spider Mites, insect eggs, aphids, and small caterpillars. Shipped as nymphs near hatching or adults ready to use (no choice).

Application: Use 100-2000 Pirate Bugs per acre, depending on rate of infestation. Although somewhat expensive, they're good for infestations when other controls alone aren't adequate.

Green Lacewing Larvae/Eggs

For use against Aphids, Thrips, Mealybugs and Whiteflies.
Looking like tiny alligators, Lacewing larvae (Chrysopa rufilabris) voraciously attack almost any prey they can grab. They inject a paralyzing venom and suck the body fluids from the helpless insect victim.

Green Lacewings are available as eggs in a cup, eggs glued to cards which are hung from foliage, or as pre-hatched ready to go larvae.

Application: Eggs and larvae can be hand sprinkled almost anywhere because Lacewings search up to 100 feet for their first meal.
Lacewing eggs may be refrigerated for a few days at 38-45 F. to delay hatching, but be careful not to freeze them. Typical egg release rates range from 5000 - 50,000 eggs per acre, depending on infestation levels. Typical larvae release rates range from 1000-5000 per acre. Repeated releases every 2-4 weeks may be necessary in severe or heavy infestations.
