In this study, it was very important to determine the biology of predator in term of its life cycle, behaviour at different stages, fecundity, longevity and searching abilities, in order to provide detail data for formulating the means of control against whitefly.

The introduction rates of this product should be adjusted to the mode of action of the product and the results that can be expected in the crop where the product is applied. Its eyes are red, its antennae are green with a black base and its legs are long, enabling it to move rapidly.

Two spotted spider mites, thrips including Echinothrips americanus and eggs of butterflies and tomato leaf miner moth Tuta absoluta are also eaten and to a lesser extent aphids and leaf miner larvae too.
