How does Aphipar - M work
Adult female parasitic wasps lay their eggs parasitically in the aphids, causing them to swell and harden into leathery, grey/brown mummies. The first adult parasitic wasps emerge through a round hole at the rear of the mummies approximately 10-14 days after introduction.

Application Aphipar - M 
  • Spread the material on rock wool slabs or in application boxes (Dibox)
  • Make sure the material remains dry and is not moved from its introduction site for at least a few days
  • Use the peel-off label to mark where the product has been introduced
Best working conditions Aphipar - M

Storage
  • After receipt: 1-2 days
  • Storage temperature: 8-10°C/47-50°F
  • In the dark
