Koppert Miglyphus 100 ml (2922) is a unique product that's specially designed to help control leaf miners. The Diglyphus isaea, a type of parasitic wasp, targets all larval stages of leaf miners, specifically the second and third one. Host feeding takes place when adult female wasp kills the larva inside the leaf mine, then lay eggs on it. Once the eggs hatches, it uses the dead larva as food for the next 8 days. Visible results will be noticeable in about a week as you will see adults emerge from the darkened pupae and through the leaf surface when you hold it up to the light. The parasitic wasp Diglyphus isaea works best and deemed to be more effective when used in warmer temperatures. This comes in a 100 ml bottle which contains 500 Diglyphus isaea adults (Parasitic Wasps).
