harvestWho is the Colorado potato beetle and where does the
come from? A gluttonous and prolific insect. The female produces 50 eggs for one laying, and for the season before 500 . They are located on the leaves below and are not immediately noticeable. The larvae that appear from them eat the leaves. The plant dies, and the beetle moves to the ground and becomes an individual, which again produces offspring. And so endlessly, until it is destroyed.
. The insect survives , it can starve for a long time, hibernates at any time. In the fall, it creeps deeper into the soil and winters without fear of cold weather. In spring, she gets out of the heated land and begins to eat the fresh shoots of potatoes, and later moves to eggplants and tomatoes.
Where does the Colorado potato beetle come from in the garden:
- From infected with soil by the larvae.
- with landing material can be entered.
- Fly from a neighboring section.
Protection methods for eggplant
The beetle is dangerous in that besides leaves destroys flowers and ovaries, it reduces crop yield. It is necessary to fight with him. There are various ways to destroy it: processing the roots of seedlings before planting, spraying the bushes and others.
The use of chemicals
A lot of chemicals are known to fight. But the insect adapts to them, it is necessary to invent new species to save the plant. Modern active chemicals: Confidor-Maxi, Prestige, Calypso, Killer.
Fights against beetle, whitefly, mites. Besides spraying it can be used with drip irrigation .Highly effective drug.
Protects and stimulates plant growth, this effect lasts until flowering. Then the bugs may appear, but in a small amount, and the dangerous moment for the formation of the harvest has already passed.
Not washed off by rain. A single spraying provides protection for the entire garden season. Destroys the beetle itself, its eggs and larvae. Protects eggplant culture from aphids, ticks, whitefly. Recognized as the most effective in fighting the Colorado potato beetle.
Produced by the German company. Once in the body, it paralyzes the digestive organs and causes death from starvation. Has an effect an hour after spraying. Protection lasts thirty days. Harmless to bees.
There are no harmful chemical components in the composition of such preparations. Their main goal is the destruction of the larvae. These are various fungi and bacteria, which penetrate into the body with food, cause paralysis and the insect perishes.
Production of the biological product Fitoverm, was a real discovery in agronomy. Kills the leaf beetle for 9 hours, after application. The preparation does not destroy its eggs, so the treatment must be repeated when new larvae appear.
Contains fungal spores, causing fungal diseases in harmful insects and their death.
Prepared on the basis of an alcoholic infusion of soil fungi. The tool is not addictive and can be used on the site for several years.
Used when new larvae of the striped predator appear. Treat eggplant bushes 2-4 times with a break of 7 days.
The advantages of using biological products is that they destroy only harmful individuals. The active ingredients of these products are harmless to the soil and the environment. Not dangerous for beneficial insects, birds, animals and people.
