Description

FRESAcontrol to control aphids in strawberry crops

Parasitic wasp mix
FRESAcontrol provides excellent control of aphid populations. FRESAcontrol contains a mix of parasitic wasps. The mix contains of: Aphidius colemani, Aphidius ervi, Aphidius matricariae, Aphelinus abdominalis, Ephedrus cerasicola en Praon volucre. The mix is specifically aimed at controlling aphids in strawberry crops.

  • Aphidius colemani mainly parasitizes the smaller aphids, such as: cowpea aphid (Aphis craccivor), cotton aphid (Aphis gossypii), small bramble aphid (Aphis ruborum), and the green peach aphid (Myzus persicae).
  • Aphidius ervi: specializes in parasitizing the larger aphids such as: geranium aphid (Acyrthosiphon malvae), foxglove aphid (Aulacorthum solani), potato aphid (Macrosiphum euphorbiae), rose aphid (Macrosiphum rosea) and the yellow rose aphid (Rhobodium porosum). 
  • Aphidius matricariae: parasitizes, similar to Aphidius colemani, on the cowpea aphid (Aphis craccivor), cotton aphid (Aphis gossypii), Buckthorn aphid (Aphis nasturtii) small bramble aphid (Aphis ruborum) green peach aphid (Myzus persicae). In comparison with Aphidius colemani, Aphidius matericariae is much faster.
  • Aphelinus abdominalis: is just like the Aphidius ervi specialized in parasitizing the foxglove aphid (Aulacorthum solani), potato aphid (Macrosiphum euphorbiae), rose aphid (Macrosiphum rosea) and the yellow rose aphid (Rhobodium porosum).
  • Ephedrus cerasicola: parasitizes mainly on the foxglove aphid (Aulacorthum solani) and the green peach aphid (Myzus persicae).
  •  Praon volucre: parasitizes geranium aphid (Acyrthosiphon malvae), rose aphid (Macrosiphum rosea), potato aphid (Macrosiphum euphorbiae), green peach aphid (Myzus persicae) and the foxglove aphid (Aulacorthum solani).

The adult parasitic wasps will hatch and parasitize aphids by inserting an egg. The parasitic wasps find aphids in the crop even before the lice can be seen, so these parasitic wasps are very suitable for preventive use. Note that the parasitic wasps leave empty mummies in the crop. This can be at the expense of decorative value. It is recommended to regularly repeat treatment with parasitic wasps in the greenhouse.

In strawberry cultivation, the number of legal active substances decreases and the MRLs are increasingly sharpened. In addition, resistance occurs which has made chemical control difficult. FRESAcontrol offers an alternative to chemical control. The balanced mix ensures that all the aphids can be controlled.
