Caterpillar Parasites (Trichogramma species) 

Parasitic Wasps

The most effective control of caterpillars!

Available late spring through early fall


Amazing Caterpillar Parasites (Trichogramma species) control over 200 species of Caterpillars, making them the most popular bio-control in the world. They're so tiny (1/50" from wingtip to wingtip) you probably won't even see them. They work by laying their eggs inside moth or butterfly eggs so that, instead of a new generation of Caterpillars, another Parasite generation hatches out and goes on to repeat the cycle.

   Application: For best results, Parasites should be released when pest moths or their caterpillars are first seen, and further releases continued weekly or bi-weekly until caterpillars are no longer present. Use 5,000 - 25,000 per acre, depending on the level of infestation. Caterpillar Parasites come as eggs ready to hatch. 5,000 eggs glued to a small piece of cardboard. Placed around the garden, they'll hatch and breed from there.

   Handy Hint: Hired Bugs crawl around a lot more than their prey. That means they get more exposure to pesticides - which is one reason Hired Bugs die from pesticide exposure so easily. And why it's really important to be sure your plants are pesticide free before applying Hired Bugs .
