Product Code:
APB
£0.00 £0.00
In stock



Particularly effective against round bodied aphid species such as Myzus persicae (peach-potato aphid) and Aphis gossypii (melon cotton aphid). It can control large populations of aphids, but will take time to achieve this and may leave many parasitised 'mummy' bodies on plants.


Use at the first sign of aphids or better, as an early season preventative. Apply as complete tube into the crop.




Temperatures need to be above 13˚C at least for the species to be active. Please see the picture on the right for application, with the cane needing to be located as close as possible to the crop canopy and avoid getting wet


The Praon mix contains a mix of Praon volucre (100), Aphidius colemani (40), A. ervi (40), A. matricariae (40) and Aphelinus abdominalis (20) (count per 240 vial).


One pack of 240 treats 200 m2

(Praon mix) contains a mix of Praon volucre (100), Aphidius colemani (40), Aphidius ervi (40), Aphidius matricariae (40) and Aphelinus abdominalis (20).


Mixes reduce the need for accurate pest species identification and are suitable for preventitive use against a range of aphid species, particularly in mixed cropping situations.

Praon volucre (mixtures only) controls a wide range of aphid species including a number not controlled by other available aphid  parasites. It has a long life cycle.


Aphidius colemani is particularly effective against round bodied aphid species such as Myzus persicae (peach-potato aphid) and Aphis gossypii (melon cotton aphid). It is not effective against Macrosiphum species.


Aphidius ervi is specifically for the larger elliptical shaped species including Macrosiphum euphorbiae (potato aphid) and Aulacorthum solani (glasshouse potato aphid). Several other aphid species such as the pea aphid are also parasitised.


Aphidius matricariae has a slightly different host range to Aphidius colemani and includes Ovatus crataegarius (mint aphid).


Aphelinus abdominalis controls a wide range of aphid species including Macrosiphum euphorbiae (potato aphid) and Aulacorthum solani (glasshouse potato aphid). It has a very long life span.
