When to use Tripar-C?
Use Tripar-C as biological control of False codling moth, Macadamia nut borer and the litchi moth.
How does Tripar-C work?
The adult Tripar-C wasps lay their eggs inside the False codling moth egg. Tripar-C larvae feed on the False codling moths’ larvae inside the egg and pupate. The moth egg changes colour from yellow to black. The newly hatched Tripar-C wasp emerges from the False codling moth egg.
