  • Aphid Killer uses the gall midge; Aphidoletes aphidimyza for the biological control of aphid colonies.
  • Aphid Killer is supplied as 250 Aphidoletes pupae in a blister pack.
  • Aphidoletes adults are attracted to feed on aphid honeydew.
  • Aphid Killer should be used between March and September, unless extra artificial lighting is being used and is best suited for indoor use.

Aphid Killer is only effective when aphid colonies are present, introduce only when aphids/greenfly have been observed on plants. Repeat applications maybe required for heavy infestations of aphids.

Aphidoletes adults are attracted to feed on aphid honeydew. The females then lay between 60-250 eggs in amongst the aphid colonies. The eggs quickly hatch into orange coloured larvae, which paralyse the aphids and then suck their body contents out! They also feed on  a wide variety and range of aphid and greenfly species.

The blister packs are easy to distribute and can be hung close or next to where the aphid populations are. The tab on the back of the blister pack is opened  to release the emerging gall midge adults. The blister packs protect the pupae whilst the adults hatch.

Aphid Kill will feed on all species of aphids.

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.

It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult.

Red bird mite [ Dermanyssus gallinae ] causes significant stress to infected birds and anemia, which  sometimes leads to death. Birds show signs of nervousness and even cannibalism.

Chickens/ hens  and other birds infected with Red Mite also see a drop in egg laying.

ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.

Androlis is available in 3 sizes M, L XL
