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. Larvae are shipped in a bottle with a small amount of food. Release them as soon as they arrive because once the food runs out they will cannibalize each other.
Price DOES NOT include delivery. Ships via FedEx Overnight to a street address only (no Post Office box). These larvae are sent out Mondays only. For Monday shipment, please have your order in no later than 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.
