Will pirate bugs control lace bugs?
I have had quite a bit of leaf damage on my zinnias, bird house gourd, and some on my yard long beans. Took a sample of the leaf and the fast moving black bug about the size of a pin head (that I saw all on those plants) to the nursery today and they said the leaf damage was from lace bugs but didnÂt know what they bug I brought was. I think they are pirate bugs. At least from the pictures IÂve seen. I would post a picture but all you would see is a black dot which is not very helpful. I am wondering if the pirate bugs would control the lace bugs or should I continue spraying with Spinosad as well? In the meantime I am on the hunt for a magnifying glass.
