Bugs this week 16 – Aphidoletes

A very small fly, but capable of quite some cleaning work in Strawberries. Below you see some pictures of:
– eggs (orange-red color)
– larvea:
– 1 with an eaten Ahpid
– 1 just starting to eat an aphid
Last year we had some problems. Predatory mites against white fly and thrips eating the eggs of the Aphidoletes, thus a growing Aphid population.
