About This Natural Enemy

Natural Enemy Description
Aphidius colemani Parasitic wasp for small aphid species such as green peach aphid and melon aphid and is used in banker plant systems. This wasp is often used with Aphidius ervi. Use when aphids are beginning to appear. Parasitized aphids turn into yellow-brown mummies. This wasp is very mobile and can locate small colonies of aphids. In late summer, populations can be slowed due to hyperparasites (smaller wasps that parasitize Aphidius larvae).
