Product description


The Ephestia Kuehniella, more commonly known as the flour moth or meal moth, is generally perceived as a pest. However, this insect, which can be easily bred in a laboratory, becomes a valuable ally in biological pest control when used in the form of eggs. They can be used as frozen eggs, serving as a sought-after alternative food source for predatory auxiliaries such as Orius insidiosus or Dicyphus hesperus. They can also be used in their fresh and sterile form for the rearing of parasitoid auxiliaries like trichogramma.
