Effective against tarsonemid mite and thrips
What does BARKERI look like?
The mobile stages of this predatory mite are pale pink, drop-shaped and have a ‘pushed-down’ position with short legs. The eggs are oval and translucent white. All stages of the predatory mite are usually found in corners of main and secondary leaf veins and in the flowers. Amblyseius barkeri cannot be distinguished in the field from Neoseiulus cucumeris and Neoseiulus californicus. Amblyseius barkeri is smaller than Neoseiulus cucumeris, which makes it better suitable for controlling tarsonemid mites, which often live in tight, small crevices.
How does BARKERI work?
The adult predatory mites and nymphs feed on young thrips larvae and various tarsonemid mite stages. The predatory mite can build a population on paprika and eggplant pollen. Preventive introduction on pollen can be done when flowering starts.
When can BARKERI be applied?
BARKERI is used to control various thrips species and tarsonemid mite in greenhouses and indoor plantings. Consider multiple introductions. The product is sensitive to several chemical pesticides. Ask advice for deployment strategies.
