Control Your Insect Infestation while Protecting our Environment
There are effective, natural solutions to controlling pests that do not include toxic chemicals which have been linked to the bee colony collapse. There are naturally occurring, living organisms – parasites – good parasites, which attack and kill pests without harming people, animals, the environment, or beneficial insects, such as bees.
At Terregena, we make these natural parasites available to you in various forms — fungal spores found in the soil throughout the world and fly predators, better known as parasitic wasps.
How Do Fungal Spores Work?
The fungal spores (Beauveria bassiana) are attracted only to their host, such as a fly or a darkling beetle. When they find their host, they penetrate the soft tissue of the insect and kill it. This fungal spore is the active material in our balEnce product.
How Do Fly Predators Work?
The female fly predators drill a hole in the fly pupae (the hard shell that looks like a grain of brown rice) and lays her eggs in that pupa. Her eggs then hatch and become fly predator larvae, which then eat and kill the developing adult fly.
