Bio Eretmocerus Pods

SKU: TL06604480

These compostable pods contain the pupae of the whitefly parasitoid Eretmocerus eremicus, which is used to control the tobacco/silverleaf/sweet potato whitefly (Bemisia tabaci). The novel pod release method provides an improved hatch rate with less labour compared to cards or bulk releases. These parasitic wasps will provide the most effective control when introduced preventatively, or early during infestation. Eretmocerus may provide a limited control of other whitefly species, but it is recommended to combine Eretmocerus eremicus with Encarsia for maximum flexibility.



  • About Biologicals

    Terralink offers a wide variety of biological pest controls. We purchase biological control agents produced by some of the largest, most respected and innovative insectaries world-wide.

  • 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.
