Aphidius colemani is used to control Aphis gossypii and Myzus persicae, and also Rhopalosiphum padi –used in banker plants as PLANTAcontrol–. A. colemani is a parasitic wasp from family Braconidae. It parasitizes the aphids in the crop. Once the wasp finds the host, it lays its eggs inside the aphid. The adult of A. colemani parasitizes about 300 aphids.
Release 1-2 ind/m2, introducing 0’25 ind/m2 weekly using the banker plants (PLANTAcontrol). Once found the hot spots of aphids, release 0’5-1 ind/m2.
Dosage can vary depending on the crop and the level of the pest. Consult the recommended dose with an Agrobío field advisor.
It can be used in protected horticultural crops, ornamental and open field crops where Myzus persicae and Aphis gossypii occur.
