Innovative and unique treatments that resolve pest problems effectively

Entosite Biological Control

Our Entosite biological control offers a natural, chemical-free solution to control insect pests, especially flies.

This innovative method relies on naturally occurring parasitic wasp species to control flies and other insect pests.

There is no risk of pesticide contamination as no chemicals are used in the biological control process.

This service can be used in sensitive environments, including:

  • Organic registered food production sites
  • Zoos and wildlife parks
  • Recycling centres and rubbish tips

Parasitic Wasp Control

Biological control, using parasitic wasp species, is an effective solution for fly control.

The parasitic wasp's stinger is specifically designed to penetrate a fly pupa and not human skin. Using small parasitic wasps (approximately 2mm in size) ensures that our biological control solution is completely harmless to humans and animals.

Key Facts

  • Chemical free process - reducing the need for pesticides, which is safer for the environment.
  • Natural solution - quick and efficient biological insect control.
  • Cost effective - treats large areas effectively and provides 24/7 protection against insect problems.
  • Versatile - parasitic wasp species can control a range of pest insects, including chemical resistant strains.
  • Protect your reputation - biological control can complement other pest control methods, quickly reducing fly infestations and other insect problems.

In most insect infestations it is the adult insects that transmit the spread of viruses and disease causing bacteria.

Parasitic wasps can break the lifecycle of the pest insects by killing the pupae before they become adults. This provides a quick solution to the threat of infestation.

How It Works

  1. Parasitic wasp infected insect pupae are released into an area where pest insects are breeding.
  2. At temperatures above fifteen degrees Celsius, one wasp will emerge from each infected pupa. The female wasp then hunts out insect pupae and injects an egg into each one.
  3. After hatching inside the pupa, the developing parasitic wasp larva kills and consumes the insect pupa as it grows, preventing the adult pest from emerging and breaking the lifecycle.
  4. Mated females are then ready to start the activity again, killing yet more pest insects in the process.

Once the insect population is eliminated the parasitic wasp population will also decline as they have no hosts left to prey on.
