ATHETA - Predatory Rove Beetle Dalotia Coriaria
Cardboard tube with 1,000 adult beetles in peat carrier.
5L Bucket with 3,000 adult beetles in peat carrier.
Atheta beetles rove their surroundings in search of prey, moving through substrate, along drainage systems and on plant leaves. Adults and larvae are active and aggressive predators. These beetles consume their prey in its entirety, Because of their flight capability, adults can travel throughout a greenhouse, ensuring good distribution and fast population development.
Use ATHETA for biological pest control of primarily:
- Fungus Gnats
- Shore Flies
- Western Flower Thrips
- Root Aphids
- Introduce at least 2 predatory beetles per m² by distributing the content of 1 package (1,000 beetles) into 10 to 20 small piles on the surface of the plant substrate (compost, coconut fiber, rock wool, etc.)
- Always consult a Koppert specialist before use.
Dalotia coriaria performs best at a 24-hour average greenhouse temperature of 25°C/77°F.
