ABOUT SPECIAL BLEND SPIDER MITE CONTROL:
Our Special Blend takes the guess work out of which mite should be used in your garden, greenhouse, or grow room. Our predatory mites are the natural and organic way to control spider mite infestation.
PREDATORY MITES IN BOTTLES vs SLOW RELEASE SACHETS:
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.
SPECIAL BLEND RELEASE RATES:
Light Infestation: 2-4 mites per square foot.
Heavy Infestation: 5-10 mites per square foot.
Release weekly or bi-weekly as needed.
Temperature Range: 43° - 110° F.
Humidity: 40% - 90%.
Hang one sachet per 3-6 square feet, every 2-4 weeks.
It's important to note that these release 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.

Predatory mites are susceptible to pesticides. Avoid spraying plants one week before or after releasing predators. Some materials may be toxic to predators for up to four weeks.
For best results, release immediately upon receipt. If storage is necessary, store at 42° - 48° F. for no longer than 48 hours.
