SIRFIcontrol-MIX: mix of Episyrphus balteatus & Sphaerophoria rueppellii.
The female lays her eggs very close to the young aphid colonies, in order to facilitate the feeding of larvae upon their emergence. They are great predators of aphids and can also feed on whitefly, thrip and red spider mite. They are sensitive to low humidity and maintain a twilight-night activity, hiding during the day.



Preventive dose: 100-400 pupae/ha weekly until population is successfully established.
Curative dose: release larvae weekly until population is successfully established.

Dosage can vary depending on the crop and the level of the pest. Consult the recommended dose with an Agrobío field advisor.
