Biologicals for Pest Control
Form the right alliance to combat garden pests from our selection of live biological control species. Instead of chemical sprays that pose a high risk to plants, humans and pets, count on pests' natural enemies that take the fight to them. They'll devour common garden bugs while leaving your prized crops alone.
Biocontrol for Greenhouses and Gardens
When it comes to controlling certain pests, the enemy of your enemy is your friend. Greenhouse Megastore has more than a dozen live biologicals for plants. Control gnats, thrips, spider mites, aphids, caterpillars and many other crawling or flying insects. Although biocontrol agents work best as a preventative measure, most can be effective against outbreaks if needed.
Our biological controls can typically be classified as predators, which attack and kill pests, and parasitoids, which attach themselves to the pest and eventually cause both to die. In some cases, we have multiple options depending on the larval stage or what plants you're trying to protect. For example, if you need bugs for fungus gnat control, NEMAforce™ SF nematodes will support tree nurseries and soft fruits, whereas DALOTIAforce rove beetles are better for covered crops. The ambient temperature, day length and other factors also impact which biological is best.
