insects are safe for your plants, and will not harm people, pets or
Beneficial insects have proven to be an effective alternative to pesticides
in the greenhouse.
For at least one month before you add beneficial insects it is important
not to use residual pesticides, such as malathion and kelthane. During this
month’s wait, control pests with pyrethrin or rotenone sprays (fairly harmless
insecticides that break down quickly). Use up to one week before releasing
your beneficial bugs.
Beneficial bugs work best when given an early start. If you don’t
notice pests until they are well out of hand, spray with one of the foregoing
sprays to get them down to a manageable level first. Then release your beneficials
and they will keep the pests under control. All our beneficial insects are
shipped with detailed instructions. Guaranteed live arrival; ready to go
to work for you!
