PRODUCT DESCRIPTION & PACKAGING

BioAphidoletes (Aphidoletes aphidimyza), commonly referred to as the gal midge, is a midge whose larvae feed on over 70 aphid species. Adults are small, delicate, mosquito-like flies with long, dangling legs and long antennae. Their eggs are oval, minute ( 0.1 mm – 0.3 mm) and orange. Adult A. aphidimyza feed on honeydew, their larvae (which look like orange maggots) although tiny, feed and consume larger aphids. Depending on their food source, they are bright-orange to red.

Aphid colonies secrete a honeydew odor that attracts adult A. aphidimiza. They deposit their eggs in these colonies so the larvae have a direct food source once they hatch. The larva paralyzes the aphids and proceeds to feed on them.

This predatory midge feeds on more than 70 different species of aphids. Shipped as pupae, the mosquito-like adults can be released into greenhouses, nurseries, interiorscapes, orchards and gardens. They rapidly disperse looking for aphid colonies to lay their eggs. The orange-colored maggot-like larvae feast on surrounding aphids while adults are sustained by pollen and nectar. Under suitable conditions, these delicate insects provide sustained seasonal protection from aphid outbreaks.

BioAphidolete is packaged in a container with 1,000 parasitized pupae.
