How does ERVIPAR work? 

Aphidius ervi is, like Aphidius colemania good searcher, which results in good parasitism rates at low aphid densities. Parasitoid population development can be hampered in summer and late summer by hyperparasitism. Hyperparasitoids are parasitoids that parasitize pupae of other parasitoid species, like Aphidius. 

When can ERVIPAR be applied? 

ERVIPAR is mainly used to control foxglove aphid and potato aphid in greenhouses and indoor plantings. ERVIPAR is suitable to control starting aphid populations. The product can be used in combination with other aphid controllerssuch as PROPYLEA, ADALIA and APHIDEND. Distribute the content of the container and leave it for a minimum of one week. Consider multiple introductions. The product is sensitive to several chemical pesticides. Ask advice for deployment strategies.
