Amblyseius andersoni appear commonly in parts of  North America and Europe. The adult andersoni has a light beige pigment, and average in size a little less than 1 mm long. andersoni females can lay approximately 35 eggs throughout their lifetime.  Adults can live about 3 weeks. andersoni becomes ineffective at 35°F. 

From the andersoni's early larvae stage to Its full adult form, it will constantly be a predator. Commonly they will feed on anything from eggs, to juveniles and even adult spider mites. They also have the ability to feed on rust and russet mites (tiny, worm-like mites which can cause major damage.

For Best Results: Try and apply andersoni early on during infestations when pest mite numbers are low. The predatory mites will then be able to focus on the smaller concentrations of mites and prevent them from growing larger and causing major damage.

 Keep the predatory mites in shade until they're ready to use, and distribute them as soon as conditions become viable. Keep the product at around 50-59° F. Do not refrigerate.
