  • Can be used preventively at low rates or curatively at high rates.
  • Adults actively seek out and parasitize aphid pests.
  • Suitable for all greenhouse crops.

Handling & Storage

Instructions for use

  • Open container in the greenhouse.
  • Releases at dawn or dusk are optimal so that adults will move into the crop.
  • Walk around the area to be treated, holding the open container at a 45º angle, releasing the emerged adults into the air.
  • Distribute the adults evenly over the area.
  • Recap the bottle and store at greenhouse temperature until more mummies have hatched.
  • Repeat the distribution of adults throughout the area until most adults have emerged from the mixture.
  • Finish by placing the open container in the greenhouse next to a plant in case more hatch.
  • For advice on recommended release rates, consult The Bioline App.
