Use En-Strip for biological control of greenhouse whiteflies (Trialeurodes vaporariorum) and tobacco whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci) in the third and fourth larval stage. Use En-Strip preventively and at the first sign of pest presence.
How does En-Strip work?
Female adult parasitic wasps parasitize the third and fourth larval stage of the whitefly. Additionally, host feeding also occurs.
How to use En-Strip
Open package carefully inside the greenhouse
Bend and tear off the strips opposite from the mounting hole.
Suspend the cards in the crop, if possible approximately 75 cm./29.5 in. under the plant head.
Avoid direct sunlight
Do not touch the pupae
Best working conditions En-Strip
Optimal working conditions for En-Strip require a minimum 24 hour average greenhouse temperature of at least 17°C/63°F. At lower temperatures it is recommended to use the cards with half the amount of pupae.
Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on their quality. In case you do need to store En-Strip, please follow the instructions below. Koppert B.V. is not liable for any loss of quality if the product is stored for longer and/or under different conditions than recommended.
