Bio control for loopers and caterpillars.

Technical Info



Trichogramma are minute (< 1 mm) parasitic wasps. The female lays its eggs in the eggs of pests, destroying them and preventing the emergence of caterpillars. Tricholine TA was first discovered as a product for controlling Tuta absoluta on Tomatoes, but it’s now known to control a broad range of lepidopteran pests including Duponchelia spp., Chrysodeixis spp. and Heliothis spp. It can also be used in a wide range of crops including tomato, bell peppers, aubergines, ornamentals, tobacco and even bananas.

How It Works
The larvae of the Trichogramma hatch inside the eggs of the pest and consume the egg before it can develop into the caterpillar. Adult Trichogramma will also kill host eggs by feeding on them; the host egg is stung and the female feeds on drops of liquid appearing at the site of the sting. The host egg dies leaving no evidence of parasitism.
