How It Works

By releasing a full mixture of aphid parasites, Aphiline Berry targets a broad spectrum of aphid pests that are known to occur on berries, thus reducing the worry of making an incorrect species identification. Can be used preventively at low rates or as part of a curative approach at high rates. Adults actively seek out and parasitize aphid pests.
