Parasitoid wasps Trichogramma brassicae as efficient natural enemies of the European corn borer

Trichogramma brassicae – our solution to control the European corn borer

Parasitoid wasps Trichogramma brassicae are efficient natural enemies of the European corn borer. Being so-called egg parasitoids, Trichogramma brassicae wasps lay eggs in the eggs of a host insect (for example, European corn borers), killing the host inside the parasitoid. With timely application, a very high proportion of European corn borer eggs are parasitised and eliminated. TRICHOSAFE® reduces European corn borer populations below the level of economic damage.

Application of TRICHOSAFE®

Non-hatched beneficial Trichogramma are applied in several stages of development, which results in hatching periods of up to 3 weeks.
The product is available in two proven formats:

Both variants are biodegradable under field conditions, which makes them 100% eco-friendly. Without that protection, the beneficial Trichogramma would be exposed to egg predators and adverse weather conditions.
