    Cryptolaemus montrouzieri are effective predators for use as a biological control of mealybugs and other soft scale. These fast-feeding, highly mobile ladybird beetles actively seek out mealybugs, consuming upwards of mealybugs in a lifetime. Both larvae and adults are predatory and reduce the need for sprays; thereby, making them versatile tools in integrated 5/5(5).

Cryptolaemus is native to Australia and has been exported to many coun-tries around the world to improve biological control of mealybugs. Appearance. Cryptolaemus montrouzieri is a small (about mm long), dark brown lady beetle with a tan to orange head and posterior.

The larvae grow up to cm in length and have woolly appendages of wax (their true legs are barely visible underneath) which makes them resemble mealybugs, although they are about twice as large as the adult female citrus mealybug.

‘Cryptolaemus’ is the most commonly used biological control for mealybugs. • Adult beetles are dark brown with orange heads and tails, 4 mm (1/6 inch) long. • Larvae are alligators shaped, up to cm (1/2 inch) long, and covered with white waxy hairs thatFile Size: KB.

Mealybugs are difficult to control with pesticides. This is largely due to their waxy covering, habit of infesting used in conjunction with the wasp parasite Leptomastix where available. Naturally occurring predators of mealybugs include lady beetles, green and brown lacewings, spiders, minute pirate bugs, and larvae of predaceous midges.

The mealybug destroyer lady beetle, Cryptolaemus montrouzieri, is the most important of these predators in many areas. It does not tolerate cold winters, so it is more common in southern.

Sex ratio in the population is about equal, with somewhat fewer females than males (40% females).This adventive ladybird was deliberately imported from Australia and released into New Zealand several times from to to control mealybugs. It is mainly found in Auckland and Northland as it does not persist in places with cool winters.

It occurs on plants infested with mealybugs and scale insects, especially those found on Bunya pine and Norfolk Island pine .
