ERVIcontrol to control aphids
ERVIcontrol contains mummies of the parasitic wasp Aphidius ervi. After introducing the parasitic wasp in the crop, they search for the aphid. The adult Aphidius ervi parasitizes on the aphid by drilling a hole in the aphid and laying an egg in its body. Aphids can’t defend themselves against these attacks. The egg hatches inside the aphid resulting in mummification and eventually in a new parasitic wasp.
Aphidius ervi is specialized in parasitizing the larger aphids such as the potato aphid (MAcrosiphum Rosea) Rose aphid (Macrosiphum Rosea), and butterflower aphid (Aulocorthum Solani) and is highly suitable for preventive use. Aphidius ervi can be used in any crop, but above 30°C the activity of Aphidius ervi significantly decreases. Due to the mummies, which remain on the leaf, ervi is mainly used in vegetable crops.
At Royal Brinkman, a team of specialists checks the quality of beneficial insects, mites and nematodes. Based on a protocol they work to deliver the best quality to the customers.
ERVIcontrol is supplied in bottles with buckwheat as carrier material, which protects the mummies from moisture and possible damage during transport.
ERVIcontrol is available in the following packages:
• 250 mummies / bottle (100 ml)
• 1.000 mummies / bottle (100 ml)
• 5.000 mummies / bottle (250 ml)
Aphidius ervi is also available as a mix with other types of parasitic wasps, for the simultaneous control of multiple aphid species.
Place the parasitic wasps at dusk. Open the packaging at the place of use and spread the mummies evenly over the surface to be treated. Sprinkle the mummies in places sheltered from the sun and dry. Leave the bottle with mummies left behind in a dry and sheltered place. To maintain the population it is advisable to use ERVIcontrol regularly.
