Aphid Controls

Aphidius colemani etc.

Aphidius spp. A. colemani or A. ervi and Aphelinus abdominalis

Aphid Parasitoids are tiny, stingless mini-wasps which can be extremely helpful in preventing and correcting low-level aphid populations and augmenting predatory insects on over forty aphid species. Use at the first sign of aphids or, preventively based on your records. Once installed these biocontrol agents will often show up next spring with the first aphids. Shipped as “mummies” or adults depending upon which species is ordered.

Chrysoperla rufilabris

Lacewings or aphid lions, as they’re commonly called, are very aggressive predators in their larval form. They prefer aphids but may also consume long-tailed mealybugs and other scales, whiteflies and other soft-bodied pests such as insect eggs. Use the eggs for non-pointed applications, i.e., general garden or field usage. Use the larvae for targeted control in greenhouses. Shipped as eggs in rice hulls or as larvae in frames or bottles, as requested.

Hippodamia convergens

Convergent Ladybugs – yes, the ones we are all familiar with – are terrific aphid predators which, like Lacewings, are quite opportunistic and may, at times, impact non-aphid pests. Ladybugs are refrigerator storable, and lots of little releases are necessary, but as an effective control of aphids, for the price of ladybugs, none are better. Shipped as adults.

Hippodamia can be Shipped 2nd Day Air.
