ERVIcontrol to control aphids

Aphidius ervi
ERVIcontrol contains mummies of the parasitic wasp Aphidius ervi. After introducing the parasitic wasp in the crop, they search for the aphid. The adult Aphidius ervi parasitizes on the aphid by drilling a hole in the aphid and laying an egg in its body. Aphids can’t defend themselves against these attacks. The egg hatches inside the aphid resulting in mummification and eventually in a new parasitic wasp.

Aphidius ervi is specialized in parasitizing the larger aphids such as the potato aphid (MAcrosiphum Rosea) Rose aphid (Macrosiphum Rosea), and butterflower aphid (Aulocorthum Solani) and is highly suitable for preventive use. Aphidius ervi can be used in any crop, but above 30°C the activity of Aphidius ervi significantly decreases. Due to the mummies, which remain on the leaf, ervi is mainly used in vegetable crops.

Product characteristics
• Parasitizes several aphids species
• Also available as cultivation-specific mixes
• Use both preventively and curatively

ERVIcontrol is supplied in bottles with buckwheat as carrier material, which protects the mummies from moisture and possible damage  during transport.

ERVIcontrol is available in the following packages:

• 250 mummies / bottle (100 ml)
• 1.000 mummies / bottle (100 ml)
• 5.000 mummies / bottle (250 ml)

Aphidius ervi is also available as a mix with other types of parasitic wasps, for the simultaneous control of multiple aphid species.

User instructions
Introduce the parasitic wasps at dusk. Open the package at the place of use. Divide the mummies equally over the surface to be treated. Spread the mummies on sun-sheltered and dry places. It is recommended to regularly repeat treatment with ERVIcontrol.

Storage and transport
Check the product when you receive it for any deviations and preferably use it immediately or within 18 hours. During the transport some mummies may have hatched. This is not a problem, but in the case of emerging mummies, the product should be used immediately. If storage is required, keep the product in a dark place at a temperature of 8 - 10°C.
