The Koppert Aphilin contains Aphelinus abdominalis or parastic wasps that completely targets damaging Aphids commonly found on potatoes. It specifically controls potato aphid Macrosiphum euphorbiae and the glasshouse potato aphid Aulacorthum solani. Female adult parasitic wasps manage aphids through parasitizing and host feeding also takes place. Other than that, these parasitic wasps gives side effects that are against Myzus persicae.

Material should remain at its introduction site for a few days. Per 100 ml. bottle holds mummies mixed with wood-chips where 500 parasitic wasps can hatch.
