Cryptolaemus montrouzieri


CRYPTO-TEC is a generalist predator of mealybug and other soft scale insects. Adult beetles locate their prey by using visual and chemical signals, the white wax and honeydew secretions produced by mealybugs act as attractants and stimulate the beetles to lay eggs. All mobile life stages are voracious feeders and prey on all mealybug life stages. Each larva can consume up to 800 eggs or 250 nymphs or 30 adults in the duration of its development.



Nephus kamburovi


NEPH-TEC is a generalist predator of mealybug feeding on the eggs and small life stages thereof. The adult beetles as well as the larval stages prey on mealybug.
