The solution against harmful soil insects

What is Atheta-System?
  • The rove beetle Atheta coriaria
  • A slender and light to dark brown biological control agent
  • Efficient biological control agent of e.g. larvae of the fungus gnats, shore fly and springtails, eggs and larvae of moth flies and pupae of thrips
What are the benefits of Atheta-System?
  • The adult predatory beetles are optimally spread, thanks to their good flight capacity
  • Actively search for prey in the soil
  • Smooth adaptation to various substrates such as potting soil, coconut and rock wool
How does biological control with Atheta-System work?
  • Both adults and larvae are good predators
  • They are attracted by the smell of affected plants or by other organic material, in which prey is present
  • The predatory beetles consume 10 to 20 prey a day
  • They do not go into diapause in covered crops
In which crops can you introduce Atheta-System?
  • Herbs and ornamental plants in pots
  • Propagation of seedlings and cuttings
