Southern green stink bug (Nezara viridula).
How it works
Mode of action
Adult female parasitic wasps of Trissolcus basalis lay an egg in a host egg. Larvae develop inside the host egg, and after pupation the adult emerges from the host egg by biting a hole in the lid of the stink bug egg.
Parasitised host eggs turn beige-brown after about a week and shiny grey-black after about 10-12 days. Nezara eggs from which Trissolcus has emerged have an opening with a serrated edge. Unparasitised eggs have a nice round edge.
|Pack size||5000 pupae.|
|Presentation||90 ml cardboard tube.|
Directions for use
Sprinkle the pupae in Diboxes; 100 Diboxes/ha are recommended.
The dosage of Nezapar depends on climate, crop and stink bug density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start preventively 3 weeks before the first stink bugs are expected. Introduction rates typically range from 1-6 per m²/release. Releases should be repeated at weekly intervals throughout the season or until control is achieved. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
Trissolcus basalis is most effective at temperatures between 20°C and 30°C (77 and 86°F).
