Product description

APHIcontrol to control aphids

Aphidius colemani
APHIcontrol contains mummies of the parasitic wasp Aphidius colemani. The adult parasitic wasps will hatch and parasitize aphids by inserting an egg. Aphidius colemani has a very good search capability. The parasitic wasps depends on the aphids to complete their life cycle.

Aphidius colemani mainly parasitizes the smaller aphid species such as Aphis gossypii (cotton aphid), Myzus persicae (peach lice) and Myzus nocotianae (tabacco lice).

The parasitic wasps find aphids in the crop even before they can be seen, so these parasitic wasps are very suitable for preventative use. Aphids can occur in almost all crops. The Aphids have no defends against parasitic wasps. The parasitic wasps leave empty mummies on the crop. This can be at the expense of the decorative value in some crops. This does not matter for vegetable crops. It is advisable to regularly use the parasitic wasps in the greenhouse.

Product characteristics
• Quick hatching
• Good search behaviour
• Can be used preventative
• High ovi position of  80 - 100 eggs per day.
