General information

When to use Aphipar-M?

Use Aphipar-M primarily for biological pest control of tobacco aphid (Myzus persicae nicotianae) and peach potato aphid (Myzus persicae). As a side effect, Aphipar-M works on cotton aphids.

How does Aphipar-M work?

Adult female parasitic wasps lay their eggs parasitically in the aphids. This causes them to swell and harden into leathery, grey/brown mummies. The first adult parasitic wasps emerge through a round hole at the rear of the mummies approximately 10-14 days after introduction.

How to use Aphipar-M
