Biocontrols For Your Cucumber Crop
The most common pests that affect greenhouse cucumber crops are thrips, two spotted spidermites, whiteflies and black melon aphids. Other pest problems that occur are Loopers/Catepillars, lygus and cucumber beetles. BCA’s are excellent in preventing pest populations from getting established when they are released early in the crop cycle, ideally during propagation.
