To ensure maximum effectiveness of Encarsia formosa, it is important that this whitefly parasite not be mixed with other whitefly parasites. Any interference could reduce the parasitism rate and decrease productivity. For extremely fast growing crops where varying instar whitefly levels occur among leaves, mixing may help. Additionally, for optimum conditions when deploying winged-insects such as Encarsia formosa – which are both small and weak fliers – fan speed should be reduced to less than 2 mph while creating still air so they can effectively search out pests.
For parasitoids, the importance of freshness cannot be understated. Cold-stored Encarsia are impaired in their ability to differentiate between scale instar larvae and tend to restrict their search for whitefly within a very limited radius from release points. Encarsia has a high requirement for light (7300 lux) and can become less active when temperatures drop below 18°C.
