  • lady bugs and parasitic wasps

    Created by Cobie Ball on

    Hi, I recently ordered lady bugs and parasitic wasps from you to treat scale on my euonymus bushes. I recently sprayed the bushes with an dormant oil. Will it be okay to release the insects when they arrive?

    Thanks!

    Hi Cobie –

    Dormant oil works by smothering insects and their eggs. As long as the product is dry you should be OK to release beneficial insects.

    Hope this helps!
