The parasitic wasp mix that can handle every aphid species

What is Aphi-Mix-System?
  • Four species of parasitic wasps: Aphelinus abdominalis, Aphidius colemani, Aphidius ervi and Aphidius matricariae
  • Effective control in crops where aphids are a challenge due to:
    • The sensitivity of the crop
    • Mixed crops in your growing area
    • The presence of a mixed aphid population
 What are the benefits of Aphi-Mix-System?
  • Each parasitic wasp parasitizes another aphid species
  • Precise identification of the aphid species is no longer necessary
How does biological control with Aphi-Mix-System work?  
  • Female parasitic wasps prick the aphids and lay about 100 eggs in the aphids, most of them during the first 4 days of their adult life
  • 1 parasitic wasp parasitizes up to 300 aphids
  • The parasitic wasps detect alarm signals of an affected plant and the smell of honeydew secreted by the host. This allows them to locate aphid hot spots from a long distance
  • The parasitic wasps parasitize adult and nymph aphids
  • Parasitized aphids change into golden brown mummies
  • Parasitic wasps can cause a panic reaction, due to which the aphids fall onto the ground and die
In which crops can you introduce Aphi-Mix-System?
  • Ornamental crops
  • Fruit crops such as strawberry, blackberry and raspberry
  • Vegetable crops such as pepper, eggplant and cucumber
