Trichoforce comes as three different parasitoids that work to prevent and control moths and caterpillars.
The Trichoforce parasitoids work by laying their own eggs in the eggs of targeted pests, the Trichoforce eggs then hatch, consume the embryo of the host egg, and then emerge to grow and lay more eggs. They have a lifespan of 7 days as immatures and up to 10 days as adults. Optimum performance conditions for them is between 70 and 85°F with a relative humidity around 60%.
Trichoforce is shipped as pre-parasitized, ready-to-emerge flour moth eggs placed on a card perforated into 30 squares.
- Trichoforce B (Trichogramma brassicae) is ideal for targeting moth eggs and the European Corn Borer (Ostrinia nubilalis).
- Trichoforce M (Trichogramma minutum) is ideal for moth control in orchards or tall crop settings
- Trichoforce PL (Trichogramma platneri) is also ideal for moth control in orchards or tall crop settings
