• Lady Bugs and Green Lacewings Quick Order/Info
    • Lady Bugs and Green Lacewings


           Two beneficial insects in one package. Ladybugs, a favorite “good bug”, when released at sundown (because they don't fly at night), eat aphids, mealy bugs, scale, leaf hoppers, and other soft bodied pests. Green Lacewings are a natural enemy of many pests. The eggs hatch into tiny larvae, known as "Aphid Lions" because of their voracious appetites (devouring as many as 1000 aphids per day). They remain larvae for up to 21 days, crawling around and eating spider mites, thrips, whitefly larvae, moth eggs, and other soft bodied pest. 
           Contains 500 live ladybugs and 1000 Lacewing eggs.

    • Lady Bugs Quick Order/Info
    • Lady Bugs

           A favorite “good bug” and alternative to chemicals, ladybugs have been a popular part of the Orcon line of beneficial insects for over 20 years. When released at sundown (because they don’t fly at night), ladybugs eat aphids, mealy bugs, scale, leaf hoppers, various plant-eating worms and other destructive soft-bodied pests. And they keep on eating until the bad guys are gone, laying their own eggs in the process. When new pests arrive, fresh ladybugs will be waiting.

FLEA DESTROYER is the crucial third step – outdoor flea control.

    • Fly Parasites Quick Order/Info
    • Fly Parasites

           Flies have been a nuisance to humans for as long as they have raised crops and bred livestock, causing skin diseases and infections and carrying contagious diseases from one animal to another — or even to humans. Flies are so difficult to control because they are so prolific. Because flies reproduce so rapidly, chemicals have never been successful in controlling fly populations because they can mutate and produce pesticide-resistant offspring. Fly Parasites interrupt these prolific insects’ life cycle, breaking the chain.
           Each order includes 5,000 eggs.
    • Green Lacewings Quick Order/Info
    • Green Lacewings


           The natural enemy of many species of pests, insects, and mites, the Green Lacewings are shipped as eggs that will soon hatch into larvae. The tiny larvae are known as "Aphid Lions" because of their voracious appetites (devouring as many as 1000 aphids per day). They remain as larvae for up to 21 days, just crawling around looking for food. Aphid Lions also make hearty meals of Mealybugs,  spider mites, caterpillars, thrips, leaf hoppers,  whitefly larvae, a wide variety of moth eggs,  and just about any other soft bodied pest. The adult green lacewing only feeds on pollen, but it will immediately begin laying eggs, and the life cycle will repeat.

           Three egg cases per order.

    • Mason Bees Quick Order/Info
    • Mason Bees


           Mason Bees are excellent early-spring pollinators; they are 120 times more effective than honey bees because they have a lot of hair on their body which picks up pollen. Unlike honeybees which clean themselves after each visit to a flower and store the pollen in sacs to carry back to the colony, the Mason Bees carry all of their pollen from flower to flower. Referred to as solitary bees,  they do not have a queen or a hive, they do not make honey and they tend not to sting. Mason Bees are active in colder temperatures which make them very effective in orchards or home gardens pollinating fruit trees. 

           Available December through March

           Six cocoons per tube, two females and four males.
