How does Aphiscout work
Adult female parasitic wasps prey on aphids. Parasitized aphids swell and solidify into leathery, black-, grey-, or brown-coloured mummies. The first adult wasps emerge from the mummies approximately two weeks after introduction.

Application Aphiscout
  • 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
  • Use the peel-off label to mark where the product has been introduced
  • Use Aphiscout as a preventative method or at the early stages of an aphid infestation when the species of aphid is not certain or unknown. The colour of a parasitized aphid gives an indication of which species of aphid parasitoid is effective against this species under the given conditions. Introduce large numbers of this specific parasitoid for a higher efficacy.
Best working conditions Aphiscout
The optimal temperature for Aphiscout lies between 16°C and 30°C.
 
Handling
Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on their quality. In case you do need to store Aphiscout, please follow the instructions below.
 
Storage
  • After receipt: 1-2 days
  • Storage temperature: 8-10°C/47-50°F
Pesticides can have (in)direct effects on beneficials. Check here
