In free dispersal, the trichogramma is colonized in portions in the form of eggs with trichogramma pupae, from a height of 7-12 meters, thus spreading the eggs over a large area from the tops of the plant to the ground. The trichogramma moults within 2-3 hours after colonization and immediately becomes active.
Dispersal can be carried out from late evening to morning at temperatures of +14 to +25°C.
Efficacy in such displacement is tremendous and instantaneous, but colonization should be repeated after 7-10 days. The method has been applied in Canada, China and the former Soviet republics.
