What is APHIPAR-M?

This product contains the parasitic wasp Aphidius matricariae; which can be uses in the biological control of aphids. APHIPAR-M works especially well in greenhouses against tobacco peach and green peach aphid. The product has a side effect on cotton lice.

How does APHIPAR-M work?

The adult female parasitic wasps parasitize the aphids. They deposit one egg per aphid. After about a week; the aphid swells and turns into a leathery grey-brown mummy. About 10-14 days after release; the young parasitoids emerge through a round hole at the back of the mummy. The new generation of parasitoids will start to search for aphids to parasitize; which leads to a further reduction of the pest population.

How to combine APHIPAR-M?

APHIPAR-M works well with other control agents against aphids; such as APHIDEND; CHRYSOPA or ADALIA larvae. These three products are predators and are therefore very suitable for cleaning up aphid hot spots. The parasitic wasps from APHIPAR-M are great searchers and can detect and parasitize the more widespread aphids. That is why the combination of predators and parasitic wasps ensures effective control of aphids.
