General information

When to use Permipar?

Use Permipar for biological control of citrus mealybug (Planococcus citri) and vine mealybug (Planococcus ficus).

How does Permipar work?

Adult female parasitic wasps parasitize the mealybugs, particularly the first and second larval or nymph stage. Permipar larvae develop inside the mealybug’s body and form a pupa. The newly hatched Permipar wasp emerges from the pupa and escapes through the mealybug’s body through a hole that the wasp creates.

How to use Permipar

Application

  • Remove the label from the bottle (according to the instructions)
  • Hang the bottle in the crop, out of direct sunlight
  • Deploy in or near the mealybug colonies
  • Leave bottles in the crop for at least two weeks
  • Carry out adequate ant control

Best working conditions

The predatory wasp is most effective at temperatures around 25°C. The lowest temperature at which development can occur is 20°C, and the highest temperature is 30°C.

Handling

Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on their quality. In case you do need to store Citripar, please follow the instructions below. Koppert SA is not liable for any loss of quality if the product is stored for longer and/or under different conditions than those recommended.
 

Storage after receipt: 1-2 days
Storage temperature: 12-14°C (do not refrigerate)

Dosage

The information given below is merely indicative. Tailored advice can be provided if information is available on the local factors that need to be taken into account, such as the crop, the climate conditions and the level of infestation. For the correct application, please consult a Koppert specialist or a recognized distributor of Koppert products.

12 000 – 30 000 wasp per Ha depending on pest pressure.
