How does Ervipar work
Adult female parasitic wasps parasitize the aphids. Parasitized aphids swell and turn into leathery, grey- or brown-coloured mummies. The first adult parasites emerge through a round hole at the rear of the mummy approximately 2 weeks after introduction.

Application Ervipar
  • Spread the material on rock wool slabs or in Diboxes
  • 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
  • Use Ervipar when aphid infestations are first observed, at the earliest sign of pest presence.
Best working conditions Ervipar
Ervipar is not active at temperatures above 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 Ervipar, please follow the instructions below.
 
Storage
  • After receipt: 1-2 days
  • Storage temperature: 8-10°C/47-50°F
  • In the dark
