Within this project we assess whether wildflower strips and companion plantsincrease the control of cabbage pests Plutella xylostella L. (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae),Mamestra brassicae L. (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and Pieris rapae L. (Lepidoptera:Pieridae) by (1) naturally occurring parasitoids and predators and (2) mass-released Trichogramma brassciae (Bezdenko) (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae)parasitoids.
