Solutions for a better world
Tricho-mites® is an organic product use to suppress food moths and clothes moths infestations in a safe way for human health. Trichogramma wasps specialize in parasitizing lepidopteran (moth and butterfly) eggs. These parasitic wasps are very effective at controlling food moths and clothes moths in homes, museums, businesses and industrial buildings. They can also be used as a treatment in bulk food stores, grain warehouses and flour mills.
The adults are tiny, measuring less than 1 mm. After mating, females actively seek lepidopteran eggs and lay their eggs inside. The trichogramma larvae develop and feed on the pest embryo.
Tricho-mites® cards contains parasitic wasps eggs. The cards are placed at the source of the infestation (e.g pantry, cupboard, etc.) and the surrondding area for a period of 8 weeks. The treatment can be prolonged if the infestation is significant.The use of Trichogramma wasps is safe for human health, animal health and the environment. They can be used alone or in combination with other control methods (e.g pheromone trap or ligh trap). They can also be applied in hard to reach or congested area.
