DESCRIPTION
A combination of three powerhouse aphid destroyers. While A. colemani primarily targets smaller aphid species, and A. ervi targets larger aphid species, A. abdominalis is a generalist with a longer lifespan, and a longer egg laying period than other parasitoids. This assortment of beneficial predators maximizes effectiveness of aphid pest management for both indoor and outdoor gardens. These parasitoids inject eggs into aphid hosts that hatch into larvae within 2-5 days. After completing development, the larvae pupate, and a new generation of adults emerge from the aphid mummies continuing the reproductive cycle.

 

TEMPERATURE
50-86°F

 

INTRODUCTION RATES
1-5 insects per 10 sq. ft., weekly, 2-3 times.

It's important to note that these release rates serve as general guidelines and may vary based on the specific pest species, the crop or plant being treated, and level of infestation. Proper monitoring of the infestation and the subsequent effectiveness of the released beneficial insect population is crucial for determining the success of the biological control strategy.

 

ITEM NUMBERS
APHIDTRPMIX-750: Minimum of 750 mummies/adults per bottle.

A food source is provided to ensure that emerged adults arrive in the best possible condition.

 

STORAGE
Do not store adults. Store pupae at 39-46°F for no longer than 48 hours.

 

PRO TIPS:

Proper identification of the aphid species is important. Monitoring the crop closely and introducing beneficial insects early will help in control pest populations.

Pesticides, even wetting agents, and spreader-stickers may adversely affect beneficial insects' survival. Broad spectrum and systemic insecticides are toxic.
