ABOUT NEOSEIULUS CALIFORNICUS:

Pear shaped, tan colored mite. They have a slower paced eating habit, which allows them to survive longer with limited food supply. Works great for preventative control.

 

PREDATORY MITES IN BOTTLES vs SLOW RELEASE SACHETS:

BOTTLED MITES:
Best choice for an active infestation.
Our adult predatory mites are a natural tool to help cure an active infestation of mites. These tiny predators feed on all life stages of unwanted pests in your garden and help to balance the ecosystem. Our beneficial insects work quickly to reduce light to moderate infestations. With heavier infestations, increase in quantity and frequency may be required.

SLOW RELEASE SACHETS:
Don't fight pests, prevent them.
Avoiding garden pests is far easier than dealing with an outbreak of bad bugs - be proactive by preventing the problem. Our sachets are filled with a blend of predatory mites in a variety of life stages, providing a slow release of pest control into your garden. When it comes to having a healthy garden, preventative care is key. Release monthly as part of your IPM program.
