All stages of many mealybug species.
How it works
Directions for use
- Deploy Cryptobug on rock wool slabs or in Diboxes close to or at a hotspot
- Apply in the evening
The dosage of Cryptobug depends on climate, crop and mealybug density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Introduction rates typically range from 2-10 per m2/release. Releases should be made in infested areas only and repeated if necessary. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
The minimum temperature for use of Cryptobug is 16°C/61°F. However, as Cryptolaemus montouzieri favors high temperatures, Cryptobug is most effective at temperatures between 25°C and 28°C (68 and 82°F).
