Eliminate soft-bodied pests the natural way!

These cards contain approximately 5,000 green lacewing eggs. Green lacewing larvae resemble alligators in both appearance and appetite. Eggs hatch within three to five days. Once hatched, the tiny larvae start looking for their first meal.Green lacewing larvae eat soft-bodied pests like aphids, thrips, mealybugs, and whiteflies. These larvae consume up to 200 aphids or other insect eggs. They travel as far as 100 feet away from where they hatch in search of food. Just hang the card on plant foliage and nature does the rest!Once they develop into adults, lacewings feed on honeydew, nectar, and pollen. They work well with existing ladybug populations, or as a substitute for ladybugs. Adults live four to six weeks. In that time, females can lay 200 eggs, creating a new batch of larvae to continue the fight!These insects ship directly from the supplier. This product can ship ground to customers in OR, NM, Northern WA, and Southern CA only. This product ships 2-day air to all other addresses to best ensure the survival of the insects. Prices start at $14.19 plus 2-day shipping.
