BioOrius (Orius laevigatus) is a predatory minute pirate bug equipped with piercing-sucking mouth parts, and two pairs of wings, the front pair being partially rigid. The adult is brown-black with grey spots.
Omnivorous, it feeds on plant pollen, sap and a large variety of insect prey. The adult BioOrius female lays between 150-200 eggs in her lifetime. The availability of quality feed improves dramatically its development and reproduction.
Consult with your local BioBee for product availability in your country.
- BioOrius is packed in a 100 cc bottle containing 500 or 1,000 predatory bugs out of which at least 80% are adults and the rest are 4th and 5th instar nymphs. The bugs are mixed in a vermiculite carrier.
- BioOrius is shipped in insulated, chilled boxes. Packaging must be kept intact until placed in the field.
- Keep in a cool location until release.
- Before application, gently rotate the bottle horizontally.
- Apply early in the morning or late in the afternoon, under relatively mild temperatures.
- Gently sprinkle on the top leaves of the plants.
The amount and frequency of the application is determined by the target crop, level of infestation, weather conditions and damage inflicted to the crop.
Before combining BioOrius with any chemical pesticide in the crop, please consult your BioBee technical field representative.
