Aphid parasite 250 contains 250 Aphidius colemani parasitic wasps of aphids and greenfly. These tiny beneficial insects lay their eggs in aphids. The aphid then dies and turns into a parasitised mummy. This is brown in colour and contains a developing Aphidius wasp. This grows and eats its way out of the aphid punching a small hole through the mummy to emerge. This process takes about 2 weeks in a suitable environment . The newly emerged Aphidius will then start to search for other aphids to lay eggs and kill.. This is a classical form of biological control at work.

  • Aphid parasite 250 is more effective in a controlled environment like greenhouses
  • Introduce when temperatures over 13.c
  • Repeat introductions are required  if treating over a season
  • Aphid colonies may require the introduction of Aphid Kill Blister packs
  • If there are multiple species of aphids , consider Aphiscout
  • Do not use insecticides when introducing natural enemies like Aphidius
  • Remove sticky traps when introducing, as the wasps get caught on them

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 4 sizes     M, L, XLXXL
