|This tiny braconid wasp will sting and parasitise smaller aphids such as Aphis gossypii, Myzus persicae and Myzus nicotianae.
30ml vial products contains purified mummies in sufficient quantity to yield 500 adults of Aphidius colemani.
Preventative control of Aphis gossypii and Myzus persicae
Adults begin to emerge in transit for immediate release
Sugar-water feeder ring ensures adult survival
Ventilated cap for optimum humidity
Release weekly at low rates as winged aphids appear in the crop. If colonies become established, make localized hotspot treatments or intervene at the economic threshold with a selective aphicide (eg pymetrozine, pirimicarb.) If aphids are suspected of transmitting virus or populations are high, use pymetrozine or pirimicarb (depending on local registrations in the crop) before releasing Aphidius colemani. Do not spray between release of adults and mummy formation
