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.
How to use Limonica
Turn and shake bottle gently before use
Carefully sprinkle material on leaves
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
Precaution: application of this product can cause sensitization or allergic reactions, we therefore advise to take the necessary precautions.
