Trichogramma are micro-wasps (<1 mm) that parasitize the eggs of the Boxwood moth. The female lays her eggs in those of the pest, destroying them and thus preventing the birth of caterpillars.
Operation: parasitized eggs = avoided caterpillar damage
After leaving the cards, the adult trichograms parasitize the eggs of the boxwood moth.
From these eggs new trichograms are born which in turn can parasitize new eggs of the Boxwood moth.
TOPBUXUS TRICHOGRAMMA therefore eliminates the plague before the first damage occurs!
Use: simple and invisible
TOPBUXUS TRICHOGRAMMA are packed in cards to protect them against bad weather and other insects.
Hang the cards in the middle of your box to optimize the effect of trichograms.
The cards can be hung inside the plants so that they are not visible from outside.
Order TOPBUXUS TRICHOGRAMMA as soon as moths are active, this is easy to monitor using the TOPBUXUS moth trap. Place the cards containing the TRICHOGRAMMA in the Box plants immediately after receipt.
Application dose: place 1 card per 5 meters of hedge or 10m2 or per topiary.
