Application Method

Use on established populations of aphids or other pest colonies, ideal for organic crops.

Technical Comments

Most crops can be infested with aphids. Damage is caused in three ways: sucking plant sap when feeding, excretion of honeydew leading to sooty mould and some species can transmit plant viruses leading to distortion and disfigured plant growth. Biological control with parasites, predators and fungal pathogens are available depending on crop and environmental conditions. There are a large number of aphid species and identification can be important when parasitic wasps are to be used. Depending on the species there can be alternate plant hosts. Winged forms develop under conditions of high density to migrate to alternate hosts. Resistance to some insecticides is a serious issue with some species.

Activity / Control

Effective at controlling established aphid populations. Also feed on whitefly eggs and scales, thrips larvae, moth eggs, young mealybug nymphs and other small insects. Use on established populations of aphids or other pest colonies, ideal for organic crops.

Application Rate

10 larvae per 1 m2 repeat after 2-3 weeks.
