BioPerminutus (Coccidoxenoides perminutus) is a parasitic wasp for the control of the citrus mealybug and the vine mealybug.
Adult wasps will emerge from the mummies within one to three days (depending upon the ambient temperature and the age of the pupa within the mummy). Immediately upon emergence, the wasps will begin searching for a host suitable to parasitize, ie. first, second and third instar larvae.
Consult with your local BioBee for product availability in your country.
BioPerminutus is packaged in boxes containing parasitized mummies . Each box contains either over 1,000 or over 3,000 mummies.
- BioPerminitus is shipped in temperature controlled boxes which must be kept intact until reaching the end-user
- Before applying, treat the area against ants.
- Position the bottle far enough from the twig, so ants can’t get into it and attack the BioPerminutus.
- Puncture the sticker in the center of the box, exposing the exit hole.
- Place the package in a shaded place, protected from rain and dew, preferably close to a mealybug-infested spot.
- Following their emergence, the wasps will fly out of the package and disperse in between the plants.
- Do not touch the mummies inside the box.
- Do not sprinkle the mummies actively from the container.
Before combining BioPerminutus with any chemical pesticide in the crop, please consult your BioBee technical field representative.
