Key Features

• Broad-spectrum control of whitefly.

• Efficacy at broad temperature range.

• Saves time when unable to identify whitefly pests.

How it Works

• Eretmocerus eremicus is better adapted than Encarsia formosa to high temperatures and those that fluctuate strongly from day to night.

• Where the two are used together to control Trialeurodes, Eretmocerus becomes dominant during periods of hotter weather.

• Using the two species in combination provides improved control of Trialeurodes throughout the season.
