Lindorus lophanthae

The Singular Black Lady Beetle a.k.a. The Scale Destroyer, like the critter above, this beetle has a big appetite and is very opportunistic. However, unlike its counterpart, this beetle is really small. This makes it useful in interiorscapes and such where an insect’s presence may not be tolerated. Shipped as adults. Larger sizes available.

Crypolaemus montrouzieri

a.k.a. Crypts Bar none, this beetle species is the number one predator used to control most mealybug species. Known as The Mealy Bug Destroyer, a.k.a. Crypts, the only critical requirement to use this beetle is to ensure the pests’ cottony egg masses are present, as this is where Crypts lay their eggs. Shipped as adults. NOTE: For more mealybug control options, also see Lacewings Chrysoperla rufilabris under Aphid Controls.
