This predatory beetle is very effective against greenhouse and sweet potato whitefly. Both the larval and adult beetles feed on all stages of whitefly and will eat spider mites when whitefly are not available. Delphastus are shipped as adults, which can consume several hundred whitefly eggs and nymphs daily.
Adult females live for approximately 1 month and lay 3-4 eggs/day. Use Delphastus along with Encarsia formosa and green lacewing.
