The product

ANDERSONI

What does ANDERSONI look like? 

The mobile stages of this predatory mite are pale pink, drop-shaped and have a ‘pushed down’ position on short legs. The eggs are oval and translucent white coloured. All stages of the predatory mite are usually found in corners of main leaf veins, secondary leaf veins and in the flowers. Amblyseius andersoni cannot be distinguished in the field from Neoseiulus cucumeris (THRIPEX) and Neoseiulus californicus (SPICAL). 

How does ANDERSONI work? 

The adult predatory mites and nymphs feed on mites, young thrips larvae and eggs and whitefly larvae. Amblyseius andersoni can also build a population on paprika and eggplant pollen. Preventive introduction on pollen can be done as soon as the crop starts flowering. 

When can ANDERSONI be applied? 

ANDERSONI is used to control various mites, thrips and whitefly species in greenhouses and indoor plantings. Consider multiple introductions. The product is sensitive to several chemical pesticides. Ask advice for deployment strategies.
