Moth Egg Parasite - Trichogramma Wasp (Card of 100K)

Moth Egg Parasite - Trichogramma Wasp (Card of 100K)

These are the Good Wasps!

Note: Trichogramma Wasps will attack indiscriminately eggs and caterpillars of pest and non-pest moths and butterflies. While this is the ideal product for moth control in orchards (or crop settings where concentrations of pest moths are high), be mindful that unless used in a controlled environment (greenhouse, large isolated orchard…), you may affect the population of non-target moths and butterflies when they are in the egg or caterpillar life stage.

Trichogramma minutum and Trichogramma platneri are tiny wasps that parasitize the eggs of most moth and butterfly species, but they don’t bother people or pets. Release 40,000-200,000 per acre at the first detection of moths. Release weekly as long as moths persist. Moth populations can be monitored with pheromone traps.

Price does not include delivery. Ships via FedEx Overnight to a street address only (no Post Office box).

Insects are sent out Tuesday and Wednesday. Place your order at least 3 business days in advance of desired shipping date (Monday holidays will delay processing of order). Unless you specify otherwise, we will send your Beneficial Insects on the next possible shipping day. You could also request delayed delivery in the Order-Specific Comments box.

These are shipped with cold packs in warm months. Do not be alarmed when the cold packs arrive warm or melted, as this will not affect the viability of the product. However, these creatures may die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather. We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem.

Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If FedEx is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.

    Disappointed

    We placed 1/3rd each of these eggs in two green houses and the last 1/3rd in the garden. As of now it only looks like sawdust. Nothing hatched. All three areas have different climates and still 0% hatch rate.

    Great natural way to get rid of moths

    I've used these inside for pantry moths. They have worked great to get rid of them. It's best to set a few thousand out and then again a week to two weeks later. If using them outside I've heard that you can hang them from a string to keep the ants away from them.

    Great product if you know how to use it

    I've used these wasps every year for the past 4 years on my fruit trees. they work great, the only problem i have had is that in the description grow organic says nothing about placement of these eggs. If you place these eggs on your trees chances are the next time you go look at them they will be covered in ants and within an hour all the eggs will be gone. I wasted a couple 100 dollars before i started placing them around dishes full of water to keep the ants out. Grow organic should really explain on the product description that these attract ants and if you do not place them somewhere where ants cannot get to them they will literally be gone in an hour.
