Sitotroga: Food for beneficial organisms
For reproduction of our BIOCARETrichogramma, we use eggs of the grain moth Sitotroga cerealella. The process of reproducing Sitotroga eggs is conducted at our company all year long.
Apart from using them for reproduction of Trichogramma, eggs of Sitotroga cerealella can also be used as host eggs or food for the cultivation of various other kinds of beneficials.
They also include Chrysoperla carnea, used to combat aphids in greenhouses, and many other beneficial organisms, such as Macrolophus spp, Nesidiocoris tenuis or Orius spp. We also deliver Sitotroga eggs for the needs of laboratories and other research centers.
