Target :  Aphids, in particular the potato aphid Macrosiphum euphorbiae and the glasshouse potato aphid Aulacorthum solani. Parasitizes also the tobacco aphid Myzus persicae var. nicotianae. Use when aphid infestations are beginning.

Introduction:  Sprinkle mummies with buckwheat on rock wool or in DIBOX in small heaps (not thicker than 2 cm!) and leave it there for at least one week.

Environmental conditions:  Not active at high temperatures (above 30°C).

Storage and handling: 1-2 days, storage temperature: 8-10°C/47-50°F, in the dark

Appearance:

  • Adults: size 4-5 mm, black
  • Other stages: develop inside host

Mode of action:  Female adult parasitic wasp parasitizes the aphid.

Visual effect:  Parasitized aphid swells and hardens into a leathery, grey or brown coloured mummy. The adult parasite emerges through a round hole at the rear of the mummy. The first mummies can be seen in the crop approximately 2 weeks after the first introduction.

Important!  The introduction rates of this product should be adjusted to the mode of action of the product and the results that can be expected in the crop where the product is applied. Your local Koppert consultant will be able to advise you further.
