Description

This white fly was found well outside of any greenhouse; may 'Global Warming' will aid its survival ...
Die Blattlaus-parasitierende Schlupfwespe Encarsia formosa wird zur biologischen Schädlingsbekämpfung eingesetzt; auch entomophage Cordyceps-Pilze werden verwendet (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lecanicillium_muscarium).
