Storage: This product is perishable as it is a live product. They should only be stored for a maximum of 2 days after receipt and must be stored at a temperature of 8-10oC.
Features & Benefits:
- Safe for humans, pets and the environment – children and pets need not be excluded from the areas.
- This one product will control more than one single pest so you will not need to buy multiple products for a range of pests.
- Can still be used in a spray programme with some pesticides including Dynamec or Smitten. If you have an unmanageable amount of pests and need to use a chemical, your beneficials should remain mostly unharmed.
- Macrolophus will eat such a large range of pests that they shouldn’t run out of food. This means that they will live for longer and shouldn’t die out meaning they will act as a preventative measure as well as a curative measure.
- MACROcontrol can be used in an organic pest control programme.
