Aphi-Mix System from Biobest
Biobest recently introduced its Aphi-Mix system targeting four major greenhouse aphid species in its product line. Populations of aphids can establish very quickly as they give birth to live young. Parasitic wasps are excellent in searching out the aphids in the greenhouse, but are very specific which aphid species they parasitize and control. Aphi-Mix system has a mix of four different wasps to cover the four major aphid species that are often found in greenhouse crops. The wasps are Aphidius colemani, Aphidius matricariae, Aphidius ervi and Aphelinus abdominalis. Aphi-Mix is available in bottles of 750 or 1500 pupae.
