Diglyphus isaea

Controls:

Diglyphus isaea is a small, black, non-stinging wasp that searches out leaf miners on which to lay its egg. The wasp kills the leaf miner as it lays its egg, and the emerging larvae use the dead miner as food. The adult parasite exits the tunnel sometime later and will then go on to lay 200 – 300 eggs during its nearly month-long life.

Application Rate Recommendations for Diglyphus isaea:

  • Preventative: 500 adults per 5,000-20,000 square feet depending on pest levels.
  • Moderate Infestation: 500 adults per 2,500-5,000 square feet.
  • Heavy Infestation: 500 adults per 1,000-2,500 square feet.

How-To UseDiglyphus isaea For Best Results:

  • Release as soon as possible after the leaf miner infection increases.
  • Apply in the morning or evening between the leaves on the plants.

Features & Benefits:

  • Kills leaf-miner larva in the mine and lays an egg on it.
  • The emerging larvae use the dead miner as food.
  • The adult parasite exits the tunnel sometime later and will then go on to lay 200 – 300 eggs during its nearly month-long life.
  • Destructive leaf miners often survive pesticide treatments because they are protected inside the tunnels but they cannot escape the parasite.
  • Leaves with short or dead-ended mines often indicate the presence of Diglyphus isaea.

Shipping & Returns

Because we ship live insects and want them to arrive to you as freshly as possible, we only ship Monday through Wednesday. This means your shipment will arrive Tuesday through Thursday, possibly Friday if there are any unforeseen delays such as bad weather. Since FedEx does not ship over the weekend, we do not want insects to sit in a fulfillment center where they have a greater chance of not arriving to your garden fresh-as-can-be.
