Product description

Description

Tricho-Mix® is a natural product used to control caterpillars that cause damage to vegetable, ornamental, herb and cannabis crops. Each Tricho-Mix card contains Trichogramma pupae – Trichogramma brassicae, Trichogramma ostriniae, and Trichogramma minutum – tiny parasitoid wasps targeting butterfly eggs.

The combination of these three species allows for a broader action against butterfly eggs. Once Tricho-Mix® cards are installed, trichogrammas emerge within 2 to 5 days, depending on environmental conditions. Once emerged and mated, females actively seek out butterfly eggs to lay their own eggs in them. The trichogramma larva develops inside the egg and feeds on the embryo, thereby preventing the hatching of defoliating caterpillars.

Targeted crops

  • Cannabis
  • Cucumbers
  • Leafy vegetables
    • Lettuces
    • Mixed greens, etc.
  • Ornamentals
  • Peppers
  • Tomatoes

Targeted pests

  • Various caterpillar species

Application Instructions

For optimal results, gently hold the card by its edges or by its hook. Introduce the cards into infested areas by placing them at 7-meter intervals.

Replace with new cards each week until control is achieved (no more caterpillars or damage).

Avoid foliar applications of pesticides.

WARNING: Ants may attack the trichogramma pupae.

Storage Instructions

Disperse the cards upon receipt. Unused cards should be refrigerated, for a maximum of 4 weeks. Do not freeze.
