When should I release lacewing eggs?
Hi, I’m considering using lacewings to take care of a few pests I have in my indoor houseplant situation. I’ve never done this before and before I purchase, I’d like to ask 2 questions to see if it’s the best solution for me.
1) I don’t have too many plants, of which I don’t have too many pests at the moment. If I were to spread half of the eggs on the infested plant(s), and then the other half 2 weeks later, I’m not sure there’s enough food (pests) for them. Is this normal?
2) Once lacewings become mature and flying, what happens afterwards? Meaning, do they continue to fly around your house, or do they die off or lay eggs and stay put in the plant?
I appreciate the time you take to help me out! Thank you!
