Bioline, we’re giving it a go

You may have heard of Syngenta, they’re a horticulture powerhouse in our our grand ole’ country and also worldwide. They’ve just introduced to a new product line intended to help control aphids, white flies and thrips – something we could all use a little help with whether outside or in the greenhouse. The product is referred to as ‘bioline’. I’ll briefly explain the idea behind it, but if you’d like to read more, just check out www.syngenta-bioline.com.uk. So basically you put these little boxes of the insect eggs out in you’re garden, they hatch and then attack said pest. These products are rain resistant so you don’t have to worry about water damage. Most of the insects contained in these boxes are parasitic to a specific pest (either spidermites, thrips or whiteflies) and take care of them that way. Ingenuis wouldn’t you say? We haven’t put our out quite yet but it’s in the works so we’ll let you know what we find out. Candler is our main man on this project so he’ll be coming back with an update soon!
