The mini-wasp for biocontrol of flies in livestock.

Biopar contains between 15,000 and 150,000 parasitoid mini-wasps of the species Muscidifurax raptorellus. It is used for biocontrol of flies in livestock. This mini-wasp kills flies by parasitizing them. Mini wasps measure a few millimeters and are completely safe for humans, animals and the environment.

How does it work?

Once dispersed in the areas where the flies breed, the mini wasps race to find and kill the fly pupae. Biopar reproduces at the expense of flies by laying their eggs inside the pupae of harmful flies. Biopar is gregarious, ie capable of laying up to 5 to 8 eggs per fly pupa. Biopar's development cycle is faster than that of Biowasp. Although mini wasps thrive without breeding, it is rare to be able to observe individuals in breeding after release. Biopar and Biowasp contain different species but are similar in their application. It is possible to combine Biopar and Biowasp. These mini wasps are effective in all environments where the different species of flies thrive: house flies (Musca domestica), stable flies (Stomoxys calcitrans), lesser house flies (Fannia canicularis), face flies (Musca autumnalis) , myiasis (Wohlfahrtia magnifica).

How to apply?

The dosage of Biopar is done according to the quantity of animals. The number of animals will influence the amount of organic matter present in the farm and therefore the development capacity of the flies on site. The Biopar dosage for unweaned animals is double the classic dosage because the food used is very rich and provides the flies with greater reproductive capacity. It is necessary to perform at least one release per month. In very hot areas or areas with very high fly population: 2 releases per month at the beginning of the cycle is recommended. Start releases early in the season. Scatter Biopar in fly breeding areas. These areas are the places where fly larvae and pupae are found. Hot spots: around walls, under feeders and drinkers, under gratings, pits and in areas where liquids and organic matter accumulate. Use Biopar in combination with other Biomite, Biowasp and Appibuster products as part of a complete fly control protocol.

Biopar is a living product, composed of auxiliaries for biological control and can therefore be used in organic or conventional agriculture.
