What is CITRIX-Mix?

CITRIX-Mix contains three parasitoid species against citrus mealybugs: Anagyrus pseudococci; Leptomastix dactylopii and Leptomastidea abnormis. All three mostly parasitize citrus mealybug.

How does CITRIX-Mix work?

The three parasitoid species are great searchers and can find mealybugs over long distances. They feed on water and honey dew in the crop. Anagyrus and Leptomastix have a preference for the bigger mealybugs; while Leptomastidea mostly parasitizes the smaller stages.. The females lay one egg per mealybug. A few weeks after release; the mealybugs swell and become darker. They turn into so called mummies. After another week; the young parasitoid emerges from the mummy through a small hole.

How to combine CITRIX-Mix?

This product already is a combination of different parasitoids. If the density of mealybugs is very high; CITRIX-Mix can be complemented by CRYPTOLAEMUS-adults or CRYPTOLAEMUS-larvae. This predatory beetle is very effective in removing mealybug hot spots.
