Eretmocerus eremicus is a hymenopterous from family Aphelinidae, which parasites the tobacco white fly (Bemisia tabaci) and the glasshouse white fly (Traleurodes vaporariorum). Eretmocerus eremicus develops all its life cycle inside its host. Once the host is located, the female lays the eggs between the host and the leaf.
The dose can go from 1.5 – 3 ind/m2, depending on the amount of white fly in the crop, intensity of the pest, area, cycle of the crop and natural parasitism.
Dosage can vary depending on the crop and the level of the pest. Consult the recommended dose with an Agrobío field advisor.
Before opening the bottle, set it horizontally and rotate it to mix the content. Open the bottle early in the morning or at sunset, and release the content in small boxes all over the crop. If the pupae come in cards then hang the cards according to the recommended dose.
Keep the bottle or box 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.
