How to control mealybugs and how to get rid of mealybugs?

Inspect all your plants regularly to ensure early detection. Like most pests, the best control for mealybugs is defensive. Healthy plants are less susceptible to infestation than stresses plants. Do you have mealybugs on plants or for example on orchids? Royal Brinkman offers a number of strong insecticides to use against mealybugs, as well as beneficial insects such as beetles and parasitic wasps. Are you unsure if you need to use a strong pesticide, mealybugs control chemicals or biological controls? Feel free to ask our specialists.

Mealybug biological control 

Mealybug is one of the most common pests in covered crops in horticulture. Mealybugs are difficult to control with chemical pesticides because of their protective wool layer. A pesticide against mealybugs therefore often does not work well enough. However, biological control of mealybugs can be done with the help of natural enemies, including parasitic wasps and predatory beetles. Royal Brinkman offers, among other things, biological insects from Agrobio that can control mealybugs. Cryptocontrol, containing the predatory beetle Cryptolaeumus montrouzieri, is often used as a natural enemy of mealybugs. The young larvae of the predatory beetle prefer the eggs and larvae of the mealy bug, where the large larvae eat all stages of the pest. The predatory beetle and parasitic wasp are best released at a cool time of day and close to mealybug hot spots. In this way you can effectively control mealybugs in the crop. 

Recognising and signalling mealybugs 

It is very important to detect and recognise mealybugs in good time. This can prevent damage to the crop as much as possible. Mealybugs suck up plant juices, which weaken the plant, resulting in reduced growth, deformation and/or yellowing of the leaves. Read the article on how to recognise and signal mealybugs in time.
