Aphidius Matricariae - Aphid parasites (mummies/adults) 30 ml vial - 500

Mite Munchers

  • £28.78

Type: Biological control agent contains the Braconid wasp. This wasp stings & parasitizes smaller aphid species, such as the Melon or Cotton Aphid (Aphis Gossypii), Peach Aphid (Myzus Persicae) & Tobacco Aphid (Myzus Nicotianae).

How it works: Prevents aphid populations from developing & reduces moderate populations to non-damaging levels. Ventilation & food source available in packaging ensures adult survival in transit & storage, & is suitable for all greenhouse crops.

Species Controlled: Aphids.

When To Use: The colemani life cycle takes 10 days at 25°C / 77°F or 14 days at 21°C / 70°F. The female wasp lays an egg within the aphid, the egg hatches within 2-3 days & the wasp larvae feeds on the aphid leaving a parasitized mummy on the plant.
