Two spotted spider mites, thrips including Echinothrips americanus and eggs of butterflies and tomato leaf miner moth Tuta absoluta are also eaten and to a lesser extent aphids and leaf miner larvae too. In this study, it was very important to determine the biology of predator in term of its life cycle, behaviour at different stages, fecundity, longevity and searching abilities, in order to provide detail data for formulating the means of control against whitefly.

Storing them for a period can have a negative impact on their quality and is only possible under the conditions described below.

Biological control is becoming important for controlling this insect pest. The study implies that M. Mode of action Adult predatory bugs and nymphs search actively for their prey, insert their sucking mouthparts and suck out the contents.


Results of this study indicated that Macrolophus caliginosus adults fed on whitefly larvae of all stages from the first larval stage to the pupal stage. Target All stages of greenhouse whitefly Trialeurodes vaporariorum and tobacco whitefly Bemisia tabacipreferring eggs and larvae. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.

Storage and handling Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Check local registration requirements. It is used in Europe in the biological control of whitefly in tomatoes grown under glass. It has become prevalent whenever crops are frequently sprayed with insecticides. It can survive for some time on its host plants in the absence of insect prey, can feed on pests other than whitefly, and has the additional advantage of being able to move freely from plant to plant.
