Product Description

The natural enemy of many species of pests, insects, and mites, the Green Lacewings are shipped as eggs that will soon hatch into larvae. The tiny larvae are known as "Aphid Lions" because of their voracious appetites (devouring as many as 1000 aphids per day). They remain as larvae for up to 21 days, just crawling around looking for food. Aphid Lions also make hearty meals of Mealybugs, spider mites, caterpillars, thrips, leaf hoppers, whitefly larvae, a wide variety of moth eggs, and just about any other soft bodied pest. The adult green lacewing only feeds on pollen, but it will immediately begin laying eggs, and the life cycle will repeat. 1,000 eggs. Restricted state: Hawaii

these lacewings arrived with an order of lady bugs,but the bag was a old style sandwich bag with fold over top, the majority of the smaller particles where scattered in the box and stayed stuck to the shipping label via vent holes in the box, i have to assume that a lot of the eggs where lost via those vent holes big enough for pinky finger to fit thru,i returned these since i dont believe 1000 eggs where ever even close to being in the bag since these bugs are so small,and the fact that the bag was not sealed or closed in anyway,just thrown in the box on top of the ladybugs, no packing to keep the bag in place or keep it from shifting around and shaking out the bugs/eggs, orcon needs better packaging

I ordered these lacewings, the next day (on the 13th) I recieved an email claiming they were shipped already. It seemed like it was taking a long time so after a while I used "track my package" only to discover it was first brought to UPS on the 19th. They actually shipped it OVER 6 Days and 8 hours after they told me they did. Why lie to me about shipping it?

I was also disappointed with the product. There are supposed to be 1,000 eggs, I counted an average portion and multiplied it out and I would be suprised if I have 400. Upon very close examination I had mostly eggs (as expected), about 10 live larvae, and many skeletonized (dead) larvae.

Nothing personal, but that is too many strikes for me. I work hard for my money and I think I will take my business to someone who really wants it.

So...in an attempt to avoid bug sprays and the like, i have been purchasing a few different predator insects mixed with some plants such as marigolds and garlic instead.
I received these lacewings three days ago (June 18), and sprinkled them around the garden. They came in a little bag with a bunch of rice flakes. The insects themselves are tiny, about the same size as fleas. Anyway, i noticed the area in which i sprinkled them the heaviest was immediately beset my a swarm of black ants. I dont know if they showed up because of the lacewings, the rice flakes, or for some other reason i am not privy to. I put a couple ant traps down, and in the areas that were more isolated, coincidentally the areas most heavily infested, i poured a little gasoline to make a point to the ants. (They havent come back since either). Anyway, that is neither here nor there. The lacewings i put out have disappeared into the foliage. I imagine i will see them as they get bigger and scarier looking, but as of right now, i have nothing further to report.
Just make sure you check the bag before chucking it. There were probably twenty to thirty of the lacewings sticking to the inside of the bag after i was done. I brushed them out and into the garden.

I will continue to update as i have more to report.

August 20th: This really did pan out well. There are lacewings flying around my garden in large numbers, and a few find their way into my home from time to time. Between these little guys, the mantids i hatched, and a resurgence in my ladybug population, i haven't seen even one gnat or aphid all summer, and quite a few of the other pest species have either been decimated or are in such small numbers that they have no impact on my garden. So, for me, the lacewings were a great purchase. Obviously now, they are more of a flower hopping insect now that they are flying around, but they obviously ate well while in their larval state.

I read the reviews, I thought I'd give it a shot. Bad idea.

I attached the baggie to a tree branch full of whitefly. The branch is still full of whitefly.

I read the reviews and figured I'd give it a shot--as expected, it was a waste of money. I gave it every shot, it didn't work. I tried ladybugs and the jury is still out because the ladybugs arrived late and may have been affected by rain. The lacewings had no such variable as they flat out did not arrive alive. The lacewing jury is conclusive on that one.

Amazon should stop the company's contract as the repeated bad experiences are an attack on the Amazon brand.

I have been purchasing Lacewings and Ladybugs all summer. This package game in a sandwich bag full of dead lacewings eggs. Nothing has hatched, no movement at all. Very disappointing!

No live larva came out of this batch of eggs. I should have heeded the other reviews. Will not be ordering again :(

I don't know if these arrived ok. It did take 12 days for them to get here. The bigger issue is that I ordered them at the same time as ladybugs (both Orcon) and they were packed in an unsealed plastic bag (just a fold over top) in the same carton with the ladybugs. The ladybugs were in a plastic container that was supposed to be completely closed, however, there was a packaging defect and they got loose inside the outer container that held the plastic bag with the lacewing eggs. There were ladybugs all inside the lacewing bag. They may have actually eaten them - and since they are mixed with sawdust and you can't actually see them I don't know how to tell if they were ok. If you order these - place them in a separate order to be safe.

Just read other reviews (wish I'd done that before the purchase). The seller has NOT changed the packaging. They still come in an open baggie. So when I opened the package, the sawdust and everything just fell out. Also, sawdust and eggs were stuck to the labeling. A total waste of money. I wish the seller would read the reviews and change the packaging. And, I learned my lesson about not reading reviews BEFORE I purchase.
