APHILIN 500 - Parasitic wasp Aphelinus Abdominalis
Each 100 ml bottle contains mummies mixed with wood-chips, from which 500 parasitic wasps hatch
Use Aphilin for the biological pest control of the potato aphid, glasshouse potato aphid & Green peach aphid.
Female adult parasitic wasps parasitize the aphid. Host feeding also takes place. Parasitized aphids convert into a leathery black coloured mummy. The adult parasitic wasp emerges through a hole with a jagged edge at the rear of the mummy. The first mummies are noticed in the crop around 2 weeks after the first introduction.
- Release mummies near infested plants, because Aphelinus abdominalis is not very mobile
- Spread material on rock wool slabs or in application boxes (Dibox)
- Make sure the material remains dry and at its introduction site for a few days
- Use the peel-off label as a marker of the location where the product was introduced
