Use Aphipar primarily for biological pest control of:
cotton aphid (Aphis gossypii)
tobacco aphid (Myzuspersicae var. nicotianae)
peach-potato aphid (Myzus persicae var. persicae)
Aphipar is especially useful at the beginning of aphid infestations.
How does Aphipar 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 mummy approximately two weeks after introduction.
Spread the material on rock wool slabs or in Diboxes
Make sure the material remains dry and is not moved from its introduction site for at least a few days
Use the peel-off label to mark where the product has been introduced
Best working conditions Aphipar
Efficacy reduces at temperatures above 30°C/86°F.
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 Aphipar, please follow the instructions below. Koppert B.V. is not liable for any loss of quality if the product is stored longer and/or under different conditions than recommended.
