Numerous species of wasps are included in the genus
but all attack and control aphids. Aphidius matricariae is reared
in commercial insectaries, generally for greenhouse use.
It is a good practice to examine infestations of aphids for mummies in their midst. Such a sight tells an observer that the aphids on that plant are under attack by natural predators and that many, if not most, of the remaining live aphids are presently parasitized and will soon die.
