Orcon Control Caterpillars Trichogramma

The Orcon Control Caterpillars Trichogramma will destroy over 200 species of pest insects. They are known to be as egg parasites that are best used against caterpillars and most moth and butterfly eggs. Trichogramma work by laying their eggs inside the target pests. They actively hatch and feed on the pest eggs which cause immediate death. For application, release the beneficial insects by afternoon or evening.

Options include: 1 square which is 4,000 eggs or 3 squares which is 12,000 eggs total


USE: The tiny Trichogramma (tri-cho-gram'-ma) are the best known of all egg parasites. These tiny egg parasites will be sent to you packaged 4,000 eggs or 12,000 eggs glued on a card. They attack over 200 species of pest insects and have been successfully used against most moth and butterfly eggs as well as most caterpillars in all kinds of habitats throughout the world.

LIFE CYCLE: The Trichogramma lays its eggs inside the eggs of lepidopterous pests (its host). One to fifty eggs will be deposited, depending on the size of the egg to be parasitized. When the Trichogramma eggs hatch into larvae inside the pest egg, they immediately feed upon the immature pests killing them before they are able to hatch. The Trichogramma completes its development inside the pest egg and emerges as an adult. Then the cycle begins again. (See diagram)

DIRECTIONS: These tiny egg parasites will be sent to you packaged one card-square to a cup. Each card-square has a colony of approximately 4,000 or 12,000 moth eggs glued onto it. Inside these moth eggs, the Trichogramma will be developing and feeding on the moth egg.

Uncap the container and place in the fork of the tree, or carefully remove the square and hang on a branch with a string or tape to keep away from ants. Attach the tape to the smooth side of the square, try not to touch the side with the eggs glued on to it. Try to place in an area that will be protected from rain.

RECOMMENDATIONS: The best time of day for release is afternoon to evening, when outside temperatures are from 70 to 80 degrees. This will allow the Trichogramma do adjust to their surroundings in the warmer evening hours. Moisture is critical to the success of all beneficial insects. Keep moisture levels up in your garden to provide dew water for these beneficial workers.
