These predators are similar to P. persimilis but can tolerate lower humidity (40% at 70 degrees F). Longipes are effective in temperatures up to 100 degrees F, although a comparable increase in humidity is required. Apply these predators in warm greenhouses and interiorscapes with artificial lighting. The lifespan of the adults, the form in which they are shipped, is 34 days.
