Will soap, neem, fungicide kill my lacewing larvae?
I just released some lacewing eggs and am going to release some more in a week or so. But I still have other pests and mildews to fight... namely the tomato suck bug and powdery mildew.
Can I still spray soap and/or potassium bicarbonate without harming the lacewing larvae? Or should I just vacuum the suck bugs and use the potassium bicarbonate for the PM.
Really kind of discouraging. My tomato plants are really looking bad and it's only August. And a couple of my pepper plants are losing some leaves. I'd hate to think I just spent $60 and the lacewings aren't even going to get a chance to dig in and make their mark.
Btw, the yellowing of the leaves and leaf loss--- what would be your best guesses? Mites, PM, the suck bugs. let me know if you need pics.
