Dalotia coriaria, more commonly known as the Rove beetle, is a soil/growing medium dwelling predator. The beetles rove their surroundings in search of prey, moving through substrate, along drainage systems, and on plant leaves. Adults and larvae are active and aggressive predators. Because of their flight capability, adults can travel throughout a greenhouse, ensuring good distribution and fast population development.
