Fly pupae parasites

Biowasp contains 2 species of mini-wasps (Spalangia cameroni and Muscidifurax sp) parasitoids of fly pupae. They parasitize a wide variety of flies and allow control of flies in development. They can be used in different farm environments for fly control. Biowasp is preferably used on straw-covered areas.

How does it work?

Once dispersed in the areas where the flies develop, the mini-wasps start searching for fly pupae to parasitize and consume them. The Biowasp are scattered over areas with little trampling and likely to harbor fly larvae and pupae (around walls, under drinking troughs, in food storage areas, where there is an accumulation of organic matter) . A single mini wasp destroys about 100 fly pupae over its lifetime. The dosage is made according to the number of animals or the quantity of organic matter.

How to apply?

Scatter the content of the package evenly over the areas to be treated. The dosage is done by number of animals or quantity of organic matter. For unweaned animals, double the dosages.

For an effective biocontrol, treat from spring and frequently renew the releases. Release Biowasp regularly (every 2 to 4 weeks). To be combined with Biomite at the start of the protocol.

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