Product Overview

Koppert Minusa 100 ml (2941) is a unique product that's specially designed to help control leaf miners. The Dacnusa sibirica, a type of parasitic wasp, targets all larval stages of leaf miners, specifically the first and second one. It works when adult female wasp lay eggs inside the larva of leaf miner, then a new parasitic wasp will develop inside the leaf miner pupa. Observation of parasitization will be possible after two weeks of introduction, and the presence of this parasitic wasp may be estimated by dissecting larvae in the laboratory. The parasitic wasp Dacnusa sibirica works best and deemed to be more effective when used in colder temperatures. This comes in a 100 ml bottle which contains 500 Dacnusa sibirica adults (Parasitic Wasps).
