When to use Aphilin?

Use Aphilin for the biological pest control of the potato aphid Macrosiphum euphorbiae and the glasshouse potato aphid Aulacorthum solani in particular. As a side effect, Aphilin also works against Myzus persicae.

How does Aphilin work?

Female adult parasitic wasps parasitize the aphid. Host feeding also takes place. Parasitized aphids convert into a leathery black colored 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 two weeks after the first introduction.

How to use Aphilin

Application Aphilin

  • 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, as well as the introduction site for a few days
  • Do not move product from its introduction site for at least a few days
  • Use the peel-off label as a marker of the location where the product was introduced

Handling

Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on their quality. In case you do need to store Aphilin, please follow the instructions below. Koppert B.V. is not liable for any loss of quality if the product is stored for longer than recommended and/or under incorrect conditions.

  • Storage after receipt: 1-2 days
  • Storage temperature: 8-10°C/47-50°F
  • In the dark
