Mealybug Control

Mealy Bug is a major pest in conservatories and greenhouses and with more and more ornamental plants being grown in permanent plantings, this allows the pest to flourish and overwinter. Mealy Bugs feed by sucking the sap from the plant, causing leaves to yellow. Excess sap is excreted as sticky honeydew, which coats the lower leaves. Another sure sign of a mealy bug infestation is "white wool" developing on the plant leaves and stems.Control mealy bug by introducing Cryptolaemus Larvae and / or Ladybird Larvae

  1. Mealybug Lure and Traps

    Use this new Mealybug Lure and sticky traps and control the male winged mealy bugs in your greenhouse or conservatory. Only the male mealy bugs fly - they only live for a short time, they not feed and their only job is to breed, so by catching them as they emerge, any eggs laid by the females will be infertile. The pheromone lure is specific to mealybugs (citrus and other species), so by placing it in the middle of a glue trap and hanging it above infected plants, the male flying mealy bug can be attracted to the glue trap and controlled. Each lure works for 6 weeks and they should be left in position where mealy bug is an on-going problem. Simply change the traps as they become full of trapped insects and change the lure every 6 weeks. Store unused lures in the fridge / freezer for up to 12 months. Lures are supplied individually with 10 x Hanging Glue Traps included. Available NOW.
