BioBee’s cutting-edge Research and Development Department is constantly developing new and innovative products.
In recent years we have introduced a unique and patented group of products; parasitic wasps for the control of mealybugs.
Our Anagyrus pseudococci and Leptomastix algirica are shipped in mummified form, using a patented production and packaging methods.
As a results, these products are more robust and dependable, and have been implemented successfully all over the world.
We have also developed a patented and unique method to process medfly eggs, store them, and use them as a protein rich food source for predatory insects.
