The dosage of Cryptobug-L depends on climate, crop and mealybug density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start introduction preventively or as soon as the first mealybugs are detected in the crop. Introduction rates typically range from 5-40 per m2/release. Releases should be repeated at least 3 times at intervals of 1-2 weeks, or until the pest is controlled. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
