Micromus-System - optimise aphid control with robust new team player

Quick, effective control of all significant aphid species

  • Fast and effective – both Micromus angulatus adults and larvae are predatory
  • True generalist – consumes all significant aphid species, including Chaetosiphon fragaefolii and Ericaphis scammellii
  • Robust - withstands lower temperatures, lives longer than other beneficials and can survive on little prey
  • Highly reproductive - female adults produce large numbers of eggs during entire lifespan
  • Teams up to optimise control – compatible with and complementary to our other aphid control agents

How are growers benefiting

  • Single Micromus adult feeds on up to 100 aphid per day, while one larva can control up to 130 each day
  • Works well in vegetables, soft fruit, medicinal cannabis and ornamental crops
  • Supplied in 100% biodegradable packaging, making waste disposal easier
