Trichogramma destroys 215 kinds of pest insects. In order to maximise the effect over a season, one needs to introduce trichogramma up to 3 times: at the beginning of a season when pests appear, at the peak of their oviposition and upon expiry of 2-3 weeks to maintain the population.
These are parasitic egg-eating ichneumon flies (riders) belonging to the hymenopterans. An adult specimen is no more than 1 mm and has a dense black or yellow-brown body. The trichogramma lays eggs into freshly laid pest eggs, thereby completely eliminating pests until the caterpillars appear. At the same time, the adult trichogramma species that feed on nectar is completely safe for plants.
One female can lay up to 80 eggs per clutch, and the new generation hatching process can take up to 14 days. Up to 400,000 trichogramma eggs per hectare (3-5 grams per hectare) are to be introduced depending on the type of crop and pest infestation. Trichogramma outreach is up to 16 metres and introduction is to be done at 80 points per hectare.
