BioNesidocoris (Nesidocoris tenuis) is a predatory bug of the Miridae family. A generalist predator, commonly found on solanaceous plants, it contributes to the control of Tuta absoluta eggs, whitefly eggs and larvae as well as spider mite in vegetable crops in greenhouses and in open fields. All mobile stages are predacious and might also feed from the plant under certain conditions. To avoid crop damage, it is necessary to control the predator/prey ratios.
N. tenuis adults are 3-4 mm in length and both male and female, are green. They possess stripy antennae, a dark band surrounding the neck and a black and white pattern on their wings. They insert their white colored eggs in the plant tissue. Nymphs are green colored, visible particularly on the underside of leaves.
Consult your local BioBee representative for additional details.
