The larvae are gray green and are known as the "Aphid- lion". Complementing their voracious appetite for aphids they also eat mealybugs, red spider mites, thrips, some small worms and many insects and larvae.
The lacewing larvae feed for about three weeks until they pupate by spinning a white colored cocoon and emerge as adults, ready to lay eggs. They are light green with transparent wings and grow about 3/4 inches in length.
