SWIRSKI-MITE PLUS contains the predatory mite Amblyseius swirskii; which can be used for the biological control of several thrips species; such as western flower thrips; onion thrips and echinothrips. The predatory mite also feeds on the eggs and larvae of whitefly and on two-spotted spider mite and tarsonemid mite. The predatory mites are combined with feeding mites in a sachet which can easily be distributed over the plants.

How does SWIRSKI-MITE PLUS work?

Adult predatory mites and nimphs suck out the contents of eggs and larvae of both thrips and whitefly. They also feed on tarsonemid mites and two-spotted spider mite. In addition; Amblyseius swirskii can build up a population on pollen of for example paprika and egg plant. These predatory mites can therefore be released as soon as the crop starts to flower. The sachets produce new predatory mites for about four weeks. After four weeks new sachets should be used.
