Host feeds and controls large numbers of whitefly larva. Prefers warm temperatures. Eretline should be used wherever Bemisia is present.
Since it can also be used to control greenhouse whitefly, it is useful in mixed populations. Available delivery systems Blister packs - containing 5, or 10, pupae in total, as 20 blisters each blister producing a minimum of or adult. Blister packs make product clearly visible and allow the grower to judge quality and emergence more easily.
Or Hanging cards - Parasitized scales attached to cards. Each card will produce a minimum of 50 female wasps. Parasite pupae are protected in the card recess. Cards available in quantities of per case. Use a selective insecticide to clean up existing populations. If there is a risk of virus transmission to plants from invading Bemisia adults, it may be preferable to use an insecticide and follow up later with Eretline releases.
Instructions for Blister Pack use Open the box in the greenhouse. Remove sheet of blister packs from the envelope, and separate along perforations. Bend the card forward slightly at the top of the blister, and pull the tab up.
Hang opened blister onto leaf petioles within crop, so it is in a shaded position. For advice on recommended release rates, consult The Bioline App. Instructions for Card use Open the box in the greenhouse. Separate individual cards by tearing strips along perforations.

Each box contains cardboard strips with 5 cards each, wrapped in plastic, with parasitized whitefly pupae. Use Ercal for biological control of greenhouse whitefly Trialeurodes vaporariorum and tobacco whitefly Bemisia tabaci in the second and third larval stage. Use Ercal preventatively and at the first sign of pest presence. Adult female parasitic wasps parasitize the second and third larval stage of the whitefly. Additionally, host feeding also occurs. However, successful introduction is possible at lower temperatures. Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt.
