Sachets with predatory mites such as Swirski-Mite Plus and Spical-Plus are effective for 4 to 6 weeks. During this period new predatory mites keep coming out of the sachets.

I have released predatory mites but can't see anything. Are they dead?

Predatory mites are so small that you can hardly see them with the naked eye. They are more visible with a magnifying glass, but even then they are usually difficult to find. They are often hidden on the plant. If you do not see the mites, it does not mean they are dead.

What is the difference between Swirski-Mite Plus and Swirski Ulti-Mite sachets?

The Swirski Ulti-Mite sachets are made from industrial compostable material. You can dispose of these sachets together with the plant waste. Private customers can throw the sachets in the bin for organic waste.
Thanks to the new material, the contents of the Ulti-Mite bags are better protected against drying out. They are therefore very suitable for use in rooms with low humidity or variable temperatures.
Both sachets contain the same type and amount of predatory mites (about 250).
