Aphidius-Mix-System - battling mixed aphid species

Simultaneously targets large and small aphid species

  • Broad control of mixed aphid species – contains two complementary Aphidius parasitic wasps A. colemani and A. ervi
  • A. ervi targets large aphid species - such as potato aphid Macrosiphum euphorbiae and foxglove aphid Aulacorthum solani
  • A. colemani targets small aphid species - such as cotton aphid Aphis gossypii and the green peach aphid Myzus persicae
  • Good results even at low prey density – very good search behaviour
  • Quick to establish – both Aphidius parasitic wasps develop and spread quickly in the crop. Individual female wasps lay around 100 eggs in first 4 days

How does Aphidius-Mix-System work?

  • Highly effective – high parasitisation rates, individual parasitic wasps can control up to 300 aphids
  • Efficient – wasps only target non-parasitised aphids and controls adults and nymphs
  • Parasitized aphids turn into golden brown mummies
  • Homes in on pest hotspots – with good searching ability, wasps detect alarm signals from plants under attack
  • Can initiate panic response – causing aphids to fall to the ground and die.
