DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT
- Bottle of 250 adults
Diglyphus isaea is a small parasitic wasp that controls the most important species of leafminers. The population of Diglyphus isaea grows faster than the leafminers’ population. When the female of D. isaea finds a leafminer, paralyses it and lays an egg next to it. From the egg emerges a larva, which feeds on the dead leafminer.
Release 0.25-0.5 ind./m2 weekly for two consecutive weeks. The first release must be done where the first leafminers appear.
Diglyphus isaea is used in several horticultural, ornamental and fruit crops.
Open the bottle inside the greenhouse and walk slowly to let the wasps fly out into the crop. Hit the bottom of the bottle carefully to encourage the wasps to fly out. Keep the bottle in the crop until all the wasps have left the bottle.
Keep the bottle horizontally and at a temperature of 8-10ºC. Do not break the cold chain in all the transport and storage process. Do not store the product after 48 hours of receipt, and never expose it to sunlight or pesticides.
