Effective against most commonly occurring aphids.
How it works
Mode of action
Adult parasitic wasps emerge from the mummies and females lay their eggs into aphids. The next generation of parasitic wasps develops inside the aphid, which converts into a leathery mummy. The adult parasitic wasp emerges through a hole in the mummy. The first mummies are noticed in the crop around 2 weeks after the first introduction.
Parasitized aphids turn into mummies which look slightly different depending of the parasitic wasp species.
|Pack size||250 mummies: 20% Aphidius colemani, 15% Aphidius ervi, 15% Aphelinus abdominalis, 40% Praon volucre, 10% Ephedrus cerasicola.|
|Presentation||90 ml cardboard cylinder with shaker lid.|
Directions for use
- Peel off the outer layer of the label starting at the upper right corner
- Hang the cylinder horizontally from a crop wire, branch, or leaf stalk by winding the label around it and sticking the end of the label back onto the label
- Turn the lid until the small holes align with the opening
The dosage of Aphiscout depends on climate, crop and aphid density and species, and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start introduction preventively soon after planting of the crop. Introduction rates typically range from 0.75-1.5 parasitic wasps per m2. This is equivalent to one unit every 250-350 m2. The parasitic wasps will emerge within 2 weeks. Releases should be repeated when aphids are still present. If the aphid species present is known it might be better to switch to an appropriate single species product (Aphilin, Aphipar, Aphipar-M or Ervipar). Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
Aphiscout is effective at temperatures between 16°C/61°F and 30°C/86°F.
Can be used in combination with other aphid biocontrol agents, like for instance Aphidend.
