Aphidius Ervi - Parasitic Wasp


Aphidius ervi is a specialist parasitic wasp of Glasshouse Potato aphid [ Aulacorthum solani ], Potato aphid [ Macrosiphum euphorbiae ] and Tobacco aphid [ Myzus persicae var nicotianae ]. Females parazitise the aphids, which swell up and become mummified killing the aphid. A new Aphidius ervi will emerge from the aphid after about two weeks.

Aphidius ervi is active from 10.c to 30.c.
