Whitefly Control Products
Used to control glasshouse whitefly Trialeurodes vaporariorum with limited control of cotton whitefly Bemisia tobaci.
Use on heated, edible and ornamental crops (+16°C) this wasp can be used throughout the year. On other crops use late spring to late autumn; ideal for poinsettia crops.
Long generation time of six weeks means that it takes time before it exerts a significant effect on the pest populations and other controls will be necessary before it is fully established. Establishment can be improved by additional feeding.
Introduce early into the crop cycle, to protect. Requires a minimum temperature of over 18°C.
This predator is released under licence for use on glasshouse grown crops, please contact for further details.
