Info:
Whiteflies in greenhouse production are usually controlled with Encarsia formosa. Certain circumstances such as high temperatures and presence of tobacco/silverleaf (Bemisia app.) whitefly limit the effectiveness of this beneficial insect. The parasitic wasp Eretmocerus eremicus can help to overcome these limitations.

Application:
The main advantages of E. eremicus are that it is an effective parasite of both types of whitefly (greenhouse and Bemisia spp.) and that it works well at high temperatures. This parasitic wasp can be used in ornamental plant productions (e.g. gerbera) and in vegetable crops (e.g.tomato, eggplant, cucumber, melon). However, it is still preferable to always introduce E. eremicus in combination with Encarsia because Encarsia has a quicker population growth, except under difficult circumstances. With weekly introductions upon first detection of whitefly, it is possible to obtain equilibrium between pest and parasite. Introduction rates strongly depend on climate, crop and kind of whitefly. However, number of E. eremicus introduced must be sufficiently high, because half of the population consists of males. Parasitation rate can be monitored easily by evaluating the percentage of yellow pupae in the crop.
Another advantage of E. eremicus is that it seems to be more to pesticides than Encarsia, which is important in integrated production system.
