Wheast - Lacewing food


Lacewing food is a green lacewing food that attracts and keeps attracting lacewing adults around. It will attract beneficial insects to your garden and encourage insects to remain in the area where you apply the Wheast.

How-To Use Wheast - Lacewing food For Best Results:

  • Mix one part of the food with an equal amount of honey or sugar. Add water slowly until a thick paste is formed. It should be smooth and creamy like peanut butter. Paint this mixture on cardboard or wooden stakes and place it in the garden or greenhouse. Leave crawling spaces on stakes so the insects can feed without getting stuck on the paste. The best time for feeding is early morning, late evening, and when making releases of beneficial insects. If you mix too much paste for a feeding, refrigerate the remainder and use it within five days. The dry mix will keep well if protected from light and moisture. The mixture can also be diluted further with water for spray applications (use 1 quart per 4 oz. of food/sugar mixture). We do not advocate spraying this mixture directly onto plants

Shipping & Returns

Because we ship live insects and want them to arrive to you as freshly as possible, we only ship Monday through Wednesday. This means your shipment will arrive Tuesday through Thursday, possibly Friday if there are any unforeseen delays such as bad weather. Since FedEx does not ship over the weekend, we do not want insects to sit in a fulfillment center where they have a greater chance of not arriving to your garden fresh-as-can-be.
