APHIcontrol is a parasitic wasp for the control of aphids and greenfly. APHIcontrol consists of Aphidius colemani mummies. The adult parasitic wasps will parasitize the aphid and lay an egg inside it. The parasatised aphid will die and turn into a parasatised mummy. It hatches 2-3 days later and the larvae will then feed on the parasitized mummy. Can be used on any protected crop with optimum temperatures of 18-25oC but will work at temperatures above 13oC. Do not use sticky traps when using APHIcontrol as the wasps will get caught on them.
