Nesidiocoris tenuis

A mirid predator that effectively controls Tuta and whiteflies. It is native to South Europe and is often found in high populations on wild plants during summer, but its activity is limited in winter. Both adult and immature stages are frequently found on solanaceous plants. In addition to Tuta and whiteflies, it consumes soft-bodied insects, and it also feeds on the plant. Preventive releases are possible and recommended during flowering to establish a predator population in the crop. Care should be taken when predator densities are high because Nesidiocoris can harm the plant when piercing plant tissue to feed. It completes its life cycle in 25 days at 25°C.

More specifically the following species are main targets: Trialeurodes vaporariorum, Bemisia tabaci, Tuta absoluta.
