Each larva can kill up to 400 aphids, more than 2,000 spider mites and about 300 eggs of the Colorado potato beetle. Its larva lives up to 14 days. Females start giving new offspring 5-10 days after winging and egg-laying lasts 1-2 months.
It is a neuropteran insect of Chrysopidae family; an adult specimen of green (sometimes light brown) colour with long shiny semi-transparent wings. Its body is up to 10 mm long, wingspan up to 30 mm.
A Chrysopida female lays up to 400 eggs during her life cycle and up to 700 eggs in laboratory conditions. The larvae of this insect are predatory which makes them an excellent entomophage, as they feed mainly on aphids, many species of mites, eggs and beetle larvae (including Colorado beetle), bedbugs and butterflies.
