Gall-midge, predatory bug


Explanation:
Hoi,

ze vallen geen planten aan, maar juist andere insecten die schadelijk zijn voor het gewas.

galmug, gall-midge parasiteert bladluizen, roofwants,predatory bug, parasiteert witte vlieg.

Ik heb hier een drietalige brochure van Koppert, de leverancier van deze beestjes, daar staan ze netjes in.

Groeten,
Carla
