Bio Encarsia

SKU: 6604465
Package

Encarsia formosa is a parasitic wasp that can be used in many crops to control the greenhouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariprum). It is easy to assess the progress of whitefly control, as parasitized whiteflies turn black in about 10 days. Encarsia may provide a limited control of other whitefly species, but it is recommended to combine Encarsia with Eretmocerus eremicus for maximum flexibility.

Sold in the form of parasitized whitefly mummies.

  • 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.
