Scientific Name: Chrysoperla rufilabris
GREEN LACEWINGS are one of the garden’s ultimate defenders and well known as a reliable defender against aphids and a wide range of other destructive pests. Their versatility as both pest predators and pollinators make them a must-have during all growing seasons. Adults Measure about ½ - ¾ inches in length, are typically green or light brown in color with a slender body, and delicate looking lace-like wings. While the larvae primarily target soft-bodied insects the adults will lay eggs and feed on nectar, pollen, and honeydew often contributing as a garden pollinator. In some cases, adult green lacewings may overwinter in protected places such as cracks and crevices and emerge in the following growing season.

Female GREEN LACEWINGS lay tiny, oval-shaped yellow or greenish eggs, often attached to fine stalks, near areas with large pest populations. After approximately 2-7 days the eggs hatch into alligator-like larvae that actively hunt, capture, and feed on various soft-bodied pests. The larvae is the predatory stage and can last for 2-4 weeks while they undergo multiple molts as they develop and grow. After the larval stage, lacewings enter the pupal stage for about 5-7 days until they emerge as fully developed adults with a lifespan of several weeks to a few months. Under favorable conditions, each female can lay up to 200 eggs, establishing a repeating cycle of new larvae and adults.

To make an informed decision about which stage to introduce to your garden, it’s important to assess specific pests, the timing of their life cycles, and the environmental conditions of your garden. If you’re looking for an immediate solution, then larvae are the way to go. If you’re looking for a long-term solution with the potential for continuous pest control, starting with eggs or adults may be beneficial. In many cases, a combination of stages may be used for more comprehensive pest control.
