Chrysoperla rufilabris larvae, Green Lacewing larvae, devour most species of soft-bodied insects, mites and pest insect eggs. Release one Green Lacewing larva per twenty pests, or two larvae per one square foot. Use 10,000 to 50,000 larvae per acre. Mix eggs with a carrier like wheat bran or vermiculite that won’t harm them, or just sprinkle the eggs over the infested plants.
Price DOES NOT include delivery. Ships via FedEx Overnight to a street address only (no Post Office box). Insects are sent out Monday through Wednesday. Place your order at least 3 business days in advance of desired shipping date. For Monday shipment, please have your order in on the previous Wednesday. Unless you specify otherwise, we will send your Beneficial Insects on the next possible shipping day. You could also request delayed delivery in the Order-Specific Comments box.
These creatures will die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather. We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem. Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If FedEx is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.
