This time a nice sery of pictures, especially about the lacewing. The adventures of a young lacewing larva entering the big bad world (although – who is bad?).
But also: lacewing larve eating quite a lot more as aphids: spidermites, spidermites eggs, and thrips (in the flower).
I have seen lots of lacewing eggs last 2 week. Essential in all those cases is: no insecticides. One grower with quite a lot of nature around the plot: lots of lacewing, hoverfly, feltiella, andersoni etc all just from the surrounding nature.
Beauty in all its complexity
