Atheta coriaria is a Staphylinid beetle that is a predator of soil and compost pests. This rove beetle is a generalist Arthropod feeder, but the adults and young stages are particularly good at feeding on the larvae of sciarid flies (Bradysia spp, Lycoriella spp, and Sciara spp) and shore flies (Scatella spp).

Staphyline c can be used in crops such as herbs and ornamentals where warm humid conditions favour these pests. It should be introduced early in the growing season. With careful management good populations will build up in the greenhouse to give high levels of control. The population build up can be greater if the Atheta rearing-release system is used. (Contact your Syngenta Bioline distributor for more information). Staphlyline c is supplied in 1litre cardboard tubes containing 500 predators

Shore flies (Scatella spp) Ornamental pot plants
This is a fast moving predator effective at a wide temperature range of 12°C to 35°C. It belongs to a family of beetles renowned for their aggressive feeding behaviour. Adults of shore flies are a nuisance to greenhouse growers, leaving ugly spots on plants and becoming trapped in packaging. The larvae of sciarids directly attack roots. Adults of both species spread plant diseases in the nursery.
