Hello RBG –

I do NOT think lacewing larvae would eat bedbugs, as the lacewings prefer to munch on garden pests such as aphids and whiteflies. The only beneficial insects I know of that will take care of this pest include house centipedes and masked assassin bugs. Unfortunately, these two predators possess a nasty bite much more painful than that of the bedbugs.

Check out what our website says about bedbug eradication at https://www.planetnatural.com/pest-problem-solver/household-pests/bed-bug-control/.

Hope this helps!
