Green Lacewing Application

This is a little heavy application, but the green lacewing eggs come in a carrier that is something like rice hulls or vermiculite consistency. In areas of expected greater infestation a quick pour is applied to the leaves in hope it will not be far away from a pest food source.

However, growers should try and make a finer application over a larger area than what is pictured. This can cause spot damage to the leaf and also the lacewings are cannibalistic meaning they will feed on each other before going to the pests. So, a finer spreading out of the beneficials is advised.
