  • Will DE Kill Trichogramma Wasps?

    Created by Deborah on

    Hi, I am very happy with my new trichogramma wasps to fight the clothes moth eggs.

    Can I in parallel (at the same time) use diatomaceous earth to kill the larvae and adults that are in the carpet or would this harm my wasps?

    Thanks.

    Deborah –

    You could use the two products together for an integrated approach to clothes moth control. DE works on pests that crawl through it by cutting them up — it is composed of one celled shells that are abrasive to the pest. I do not think that the flying wasps will come in contact with it.

    Hope this helps!
