How it works
Mode of action

Activity can be confirmed by the presence of yellow excrements on the underside of the leaves. When disturbed the beetles can play dead by retracting their legs and head.

The dosage of Delphibug depends on climate, crop and whitefly density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start introduction as soon as a whitefly hotspot is detected in the crop. Introduction rates typically range from 1-4 per m2/release. Releases should be repeated at least 3 times at weekly intervals, or until the pest is controlled. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
The minimum temperature for successful use of Delphibug is 20°C/68°F. Delphibug is most effective at temperatures between 22 and 30°C (72 and 86°F).
Use Delphibug in combination with generalist predatory mites and/or whitefly parasitoids.
