The Lacewing – Gulløye

‘Gulløye’ tilhører en gruppe som kalles ‘Nettvinger’ og er en nyttig gjest i hagen.
Larven til ‘Gulløye’ livnærer seg på bladlus de finner i hagen. For dem som ikke har møtt denne fargeglade gjesten, så måler den ca 12-14 mm i lengde i det virkelige liv.
Med en vakker grønn farge (eller kanskje vi bør kalle det kamuflasje) kan den forflytte seg
relativt usett i hagen gjennom sommeren. Mot høsten skifter den farge med plantene og blir mer ‘vissengul’. Naturen er spennende!
‘Gold Eye’ belongs to a group called ‘Net Wings’ and is a useful guest in the garden.
The ‘Gold Eye’ larva feeds on the aphids they find in the garden. For those who have not met this colorful guest, it measures approximately 12-14 mm in length in real life.
With a beautiful green color (or maybe we should call it camouflage) it can move
relatively unseen in the garden during the summer. By autumn it will change color with the plants and become more ‘pale yellow’. Nature is exciting!
