For control of Planococcus ficus, Planococcus citri. The wasp destroys second and third larvae instars and imago. If pest density is high, use Cryptolaemus montrouzieri.

Introduction ratio of Anagyrus pseudococci

Life cycle

Female after mating is looking for a prey and laying one egg in it. The length of the life cycle from egg to adult depends on the temperature conditions. It is more than 40 days at 17,5 °С and 10 days at 35°С. Males appear from unfertilized eggs, and females appear from fertilized. The definition of sex also affects which stage of the pest the egg was introduced: from the host affected at the second larval stage, mainly males appear.


Light in greenhouse has some effect on wasp activity.
