Carefully open the container inside the greenhouse
Fold the strips and start. Start cutting on the opposite side of the hanging hole
Hang the cards on the plants, and if possible, approximately 75 cm below the apex of the plant, do not expose directly to the sun
Do not touch the pupae
Environmental conditions
The average daily temperature in the greenhouse should be at least 20 ° C. At higher temperatures (above 30 ° C) Eretmocerus eremicus remains active.

Storage and packaging
Because biological control products have a (very) short life cycle, they should be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after reception. Storage may affect the quality and should only take place under the conditions indicated below. Koppert B.V. is not responsible for the loss of quality resulting from longer storage of the product and / or under inadequate conditions.

Storage after reception: 1-2 days
Storage temperature: 8-10 ° C
In the dark
Observations
Eretmocerus eremicus is less sensitive to pesticides than Encarsia formosa.
An intensive breakdown (in tomato) hinders the growth of the parasite population of the whitefly.

Morphology

Adult females: lemon-yellow
Adult males: brownish-yellow, thick antennas
Other stages: they develop inside the host
Action mode
The adult wasp (female) parasitizes the larva of the white fly. It also feeds on the host.

Visual effect
The first parasitized pupae can be seen in the crop after about 2 weeks. The parasitized pupa of the white fly turns yellow, regardless of the species. The adult wasp emerges from the pupa through a round hole.
