Neoseulus Fallacis are a "cousin" to the Californicus in that they are just as hungry and just as aggressive.

Fallacis has special survival techniques that have been studied by scientists fairly thoroughly. It overwinters in the soil and cover crop. It enters a state similar to hibernation called diapause and waits until the temperature warms back up and it becomes mobile again. Fallacis enters diapause at a lower temperature than most of its target pests.

This action makes it a great predator to use in mid spring when planting. They will stick around in the area and eat the pests still in the slow stages of diapause. It can be used in combination with Stratiolaelaps scimitus (Hypoaspsi miles) as an early preventative IPM strategy as they both enter diapause in lower temperatures than most pests so they can hunt for "sleeping ducks".
