Storage and handling Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Storing them for a period can have a negative impact on their quality and is only possible under the conditions described below.

Mode of action Adult predatory bugs and nymphs search actively for their prey, insert their sucking mouthparts and suck out the contents. Visual effect If whitefly eggs, larvae or pupae are eaten by a predatory bug, only the skin remains usually in its original form with a tiny hole where the mouthpart of the predatory bug have been inserted.

The introduction rates of this product should be adjusted to the mode of action of the product and the results that can be expected in the crop where the product is applied. Your local Koppert consultant or recognized distributor will be able to advise you further. Check local registration requirements.
