When should Nesibug be used?
Use Nesibug for the biological control of eggs and larvae of:
tomato moth (Tuta absoluta),
whitefly of the greenhouses. (Trialeurodes vaporariorum)
White tobacco fly (Bemisia tabaci).
Enter Nesibug at the start of the growing season, since the predatory bugs need time to establish and develop.
How does Nesibug work?
Adult predatory bugs and nymphs actively seek their prey and consume it. If the predatory bug eats eggs, larvae or pupae of whitefly, only the tegument remains in its original form.
Application of Nesibug
Spread the material on clean and dry rock wool blocks, in Dibox application boxes or in sheets. Make sure the material does not get stuck for at least a few hours.
Enter the product in groups of at least 25 predatory bugs.
Distribute the bottle in 6-10 points of release
Extend the material in thin layers (maximum 1 cm) to favor the exit of predatory bugs from the carrier material.
Use Entofood to provide a source of nutrients early in the season, when the plague pressure is usually low. This improves the development of Nesibug.
Artefeed can also be used after a few weeks.
