Product description


Tricho-Gard® – Crucifers is the perfect organic solution to protect your garden and vegetable crops. Inside this card are tiny but mighty wasps, known as Trichogramma brassicae, that use their specialized parasitizing abilities to combat Lepidoptera such as cabbage butterflies, diamondback moths and cabbage loopers. This biological control agent has been rigorously field tested for effectiveness and requires no special equipment or conditions – it can even be applied in inclement weather! Put an end to chemical insecticides with a safe yet effective alternative – let all cruciferous growers benefit from nature’s solutions.
