When to use Nesibug?
Use Nesibug for biological pest control of eggs and larvae of:
leaf mining moth (Tuta absoluta),
greenhouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariorum)
cotton whitefly (Bemisia tabaci).
Introduce Nesibug in the beginning of the growing season, as the predatory bug population needs time to establish and develop.
How does Nesibug work?
Adult predatory bugs and nymphs actively search for their prey and consume them; of whitefly eggs, larvae or pupae only the skin is left behind in its original form.
How to use Nesibug
Sprinkle material on clean, dry rock wool slab, in Diboxes or on leaves. Make sure the material is not disturbed for at least a few hours
Introduce in clusters of at least 25 predatory bugs
Create 6-10 distribution points per bottle
Spread material thinly (maximum 1 cm thick) to enable the predatory bugs to get out of the carrier material
Use Entofood to provide a nutrient source in the beginning of the season, when in general pest pressure is low. This enhances development of Nesibug.
After a few weeks Artefeed can also be used.
