As nymphs of Macrolophus are less mobile then adult Macrolophus, Mirical-N can be used for biological pest control in hotspots.
Introduce Macrolophus in the beginning of the growing season, as the predatory bug population needs time to establish and develop. After a few months, highly dependent on climatic conditions and availability of food, density of Macrolophus should be high enough to control the pests
How does Mirical-N work?
Adult predatory bugs and nymphs actively search for their prey and consume them. In case of whitefly eggs, larvae or pupae only the skin is left behind in its original state.
