When to Use Entofood?
Use Entofood as an alternative source of food for build-up and maintenance of Macrolophus pygmaeus populations in tomatoes in the beginning of the season and at low prey densities
How Does Entofood Work?
As Macrolophus pygmaeus has to build up a population in the crop before pest is arriving, Entofood can be used as alternative food in the first weeks after introduction.
- Apply Entofood at the locations in the greenhouse where Macrolophus Pygmaeus has been introduced.
- Apply weekly until the Macrolophus Pygmaeus population is large enough and pests are present.
- Make sure that Entofood is distributed on top of the crop.
- Entofood can be distributed using a Mini-Airbug.
