Lacewing Box

Earwig Tubes INSECT PROTECTION

» LACEWING BOX registered design

Lacewings are useful insects that are natural enemies of Greenfly and

Mites. Their larvae feed on smaller insect pests; during their two week

development, each one can eat as many as 500 Greenflys.

Adult Lacewings survive through the winter but require shelter from mid

September until the next spring.

Our SCHWEGLER Lacewing Box is a secure place in which they can spend

the winter and also provides the best possible protection against their

natural enemies.

Siting: The Lacewing Box is supplied with natural straw and should be

attached at a height of 1.5 to 2 m on a pole, mast or solitary tree, with the

side containing the slats sheltered from the wind.

When to set it up: Large numbers of lacewings can be found from midSeptember

onwards on the outskirts of towns or villages, fields, meadows or

fallow land. After the first frost the occupied box can be moved to a garden

and set up near bushes and fruit trees ready for the next spring. It can be left

outdoors all year round and requires no maintenance or cleaning.

Colour: The box is brightly painted red because lacewings see colours

differently from humans and prefer this colour.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete with galvanized steel hanger.

Dimensions: height 30.5 x width 28.5 x depth 30 cm.

Weight: approx. 8 kg.

Order No. 00 385/0

» EARWIG TUBES

Earwigs feed mainly on greenfly, spider mites and insect larvae and eggs, as well as many of the

smaller pests. It is extremely useful to gardeners in the battle against Greenfly. Earwigs are active at

night and hundreds of them will gather in these tubes during the day to sleep.

Positioning: Place the tube on the cut off end of a branch. They should be located in a shady place

about 5 to 10 cm above the ground. Other tubes can be distributed among bushes, trees or shrubs.

Always ensure that they are not exposed to too much sunlight. In vegetable beds place the tube over a

short stick about 3 to 5 cm above the ground. They require no maintenance or cleaning and can be left

outdoors all year round.

Occupancy: From early May to late autumn.

Includes: 3 tubes.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.

Dimensions: l 6 cm x height 10 cm.

Weight: approx. 0.2 kg each tube.
