TRICHOGRAMMA are tiny parasitoids known for their ability to parasitize eggs of various pest insects, particularly moth and butterfly eggs. No larger than the tip of a pencil and measuring only about 0.5-1.5mm in length, they are hard to see without magnification. In agricultural settings, researchers and farmers often use pheromone traps to monitor their presence. Although TRICHOGRAMMA can vary in color, they are generally yellow or light brown, with a slender elongated body, long thread-like antennae, and delicate iridescent wings. The entire life cycle is relatively short with rapid reproduction and development cycles. Adult females can lay dozens to hundreds of eggs inside hosts, hatching into larvae in about 1-5 days. The larvae will feed on the host as it progresses through development for approximately 5-7 days. When the larvae is fully developed it will pupate inside the host for about another 5-7 days and finally emerge as adults, ready to continue the cycle.

Use indoors or outdoors.
1-2 insects per sq. ft.,
50,000 to 100,000 per acre
weekly during moth flight.

It's important to note that these release rates serve as general guidelines and may vary based on the specific pest species, the crop or plant being treated, and level of infestation. Proper monitoring of the infestation and the subsequent effectiveness of the released beneficial insect population is crucial for determining the success of the biological control strategy.
