BioDiglyphus by BioBee
Diglyphus isaea is parasitic wasp for controlling the leaf miner – a very common pest in vegetables. Female wasps can lay over 60 fertile eggs in their lifetime. The adult female wasp sucks the liquids from its prey killing them and using the protein for her egg development. It lays its eggs close to the leaf miner and when the eggs hatch the young larvae continue feeding on them. These parasitic wasps are adapted to function in hot climatic conditions 86°F and above (30°C and above).
