Use Limonica for biological pest control of the larvae of various species of thrips (first and second larval stages) and the eggs and larvae of greenhouse and cotton whitefly (all larval stages). Introduce Limonica at the first signs of pest's presence.
How does Limonica work?
Adult predatory mites, nymphs and larvae hunt their prey or wait for it to pass by and then consume it. The mites also feed on pollen and various mite species. Use Limonica in a wide range of leafy green and ornamental crops. Limonica is not recommended for usage in tomato plants.
Make sure the material remains on the leaves for at least a few hours after introduction
Do not carry out any work on the crop in the hours after releasing the predatory mites
Aim for a minimum of 5,000 release points per hectare, evenly distributed over the total surface area
Precautions: In case of mechanical application inhalation of the product may cause sensitization. A dust mask is recommended as protection for operators and people working near place of application.
Best working conditions Limonica
The predatory mite Amblydromalus limonicus is not susceptible to diapause. Therefore, it can be introduced at temperatures as low as 13°C/55.4°F.
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 Limonica, 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.
