Atheta-System – predatory beetle dispatching harmful soil insects

Dalotia (Atheta) coriaria works well in different substrates

  • Effective against harmful soil pests - fungus gnat, shore fly and springtails larvae, plus moth larvae and thrips pupae
  • Highly efficient – both adults and larvae of the rove beetle predate on pests
  • Disperses well in the crop – winged beetles are highly mobile searching for food
  • Homes in on prey - attracted by smell from affected plants and organic material harbouring pests
  • Works well in different substrates – growing media, coir and rock wool
  • Keeps working – Atheta does not hibernate (diapause) in protected crops.
