Bio DiglyphusSKU: 6604621
Diglyphus isaea is parasitic wasp that controls leafminers (Liriomyza spp.) in many crops. Female wasps can lay over 60 fertile eggs in their lifetime. The adult female wasp sucks the liquids from its prey, killing them and using the protein for her egg development. She will paralyze leafminers and lay her eggs nearby, and when the eggs hatch the young larvae feed on them as well.
Why Use Biologicals?
One of the primary benefits of using beneficial insect release is that the process avoids chemical pest control methods such as pesticides. While pesticides are effective at controlling and eliminating pests, some plants and beneficial insects like bees can be affected negatively. Beneficial insects are a natural, organic, and environmentally sustainable way to control pests.
