Anthocoris nemoralis

It is an effective predator controlling various psyllid species. During winter, it seeks shelter within orchards. In spring, females deposit their eggs inside young leaves. Both adults and nymphs consume psyllids at all stages of development, but can also feed on other small insects. Under favorable conditions, its biological cycle lasts approximately 3 weeks.

Target pests

Various species of psyllids that infest orchards, such as pear psylla, pistachio psylla, olive psylla, but also exotic species of psyllids that have invaded Europe, such as eucalyptus psylla, albizia psylla, curtain fig psylla, have been reported as Anthocoris prey. More specifically, the following species are main targets: Cacopsylla pyri, Agonoscena pistaciae, Euphyllura olivina, Glycaspis brimblecombei, Acizzia jamatonica, Cacopsyla pulchella, Macrohomotoma gladiata, etc. Occasionally, it can also feed on soft body insects, such as aphids and lepidoptera eggs.
