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. Introduce monthly as part of your IPM program.

 

HOW TO RELEASE BOTTLED PREDATORY MITES:



AMBLYSEIUS CUCUMERIS INTRODUCTION RATES:
BOTTLE:
Introduce 5-10 per square foot, weekly or bi-weekly as needed.
Temperature Range: 43° - 80° F.
Humidity: 65% - 75%.

SACHET:
Hang one sachet per 3 square feet, but may increase to one per plant. Introduce monthly.

It's important to note that these introduction rates serve as general guidelines and can differ depending on the specific pest species, the plant being treated, and level of infestation. Proper monitoring of the infestation and the released beneficial insect population is crucial for determining the success of the biological control strategy.
