Bio Aphidius MatricariaeSKU: TL06603570
Aphidius matricariae is a parasitic wasp used to control many species of aphids, especially the cannabis aphid (Phorodon cannabis), the green peach aphid (Myzus persicae), and the tobacco peach aphid (M. p. nicotianae). Compared to other Aphidius sp., matricariae are better adapted to low temperatures, and parasitize aphids at greater numbers and more quickly. Their mummies are grey/brown, and their ability to locate small populations make for an excellent preventative option.
Sold in the form of parasitized aphid mummies.
Why Use Biologicals?
One of the primary benefits of using beneficial insect release is that the process avoids chemical pest control methods such as pesticides. While pesticides are effective at controlling and eliminating pests, some plants and beneficial insects like bees can be affected negatively. Beneficial insects are a natural, organic, and environmentally sustainable way to control pests.
