Contains Aphidius colemani(30), Aphidius ervi (30), Aphidius matricariae (30), Aphelinus abdominalis (40), Praon volucre (40) and Ephedrus cerasicola (70) (count per 240 vial).


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

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.


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


Ephedrus cerasicola has a long life cycle and high rate of egg laying capacity. Effective on a wide range of aphid species.
