Adult female parasitic wasps of Diglyphus isaea kill leaf-miner larvae by injecting them with a paralyzing toxin, and then lay their eggs next to them inside the leaf. The eggs develop into parasitic wasps inside the mine (but outside the leaf miner) and use the dead larvae as food. Use for biological pest control of leaf miners in all larval stages, especially the second and third stage.

Release parasitic wasps between leaves in the morning or in the evening. Remove lid and tap the container while walking through the growing area to encourage the adult wasps to fly. Leave bottle until the next day to ensure all predators are distributed.
