How does Cryptobug work?

Predatory beetles and larvae eat the mealybugs completely.

How to use Cryptobug

Application Cryptobug

  • Apply Cryptobug on rock wool slabs for general introduction, or in Diboxes close to or at a hotspot
  • Place among infected leaves
  • Apply in the evening

Best working conditions Cryptobug

The minimum temperature for successful use of Cryptobug is 16°C. However, as Cryptolaemus favors high temperatures and relative humidity, Cryptobug is at its most effective at temperatures between 25°C and 28°C. Beetles are more mobile then larvae and therefore more useful for general introductions or in high crops. When possible, use larvae for hotspot treatment.

Handling

Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on their quality. In case you do need to store Cryptobug, please follow the instructions below. Koppert B.V. is not liable for any loss of quality if the product is stored for longer and/or under different conditions than recommended.

  • Storage after receipt: 1-2 days
  • Storage temperature: 10-15°C/50-59°F
  • In the dark
