What is THRIPOR-L?

This product contains the predatory bug Orius laevigatus; which can be used for the biological control of various thrips species; such as western flower thrips; echinothrips and onion thrips. The predatory bug can also survive on aphids; spider mites; moth eggs and pollen; which makes THRIPOR-L very effective in pollen-producing crops. Effective control in other crops can be acquired by repeated releases.

How does THRIPOR-L work?

All stages of the predatory bug feed on thrips; which results in reduction of the pest population. They puncture their prey and feed on the contents. What remains on the plant are empty shells of the pest. At high thrips densities; the predatory bugs kill more thrips than they need as food. An adult female can consume up to twelve thrips per day; which results in a steady decrease of thrips population.

How to combine THRIPOR-L?

THRIPOR-L is great in combination with other products against thrips; such as THRIPEX PLUS or SWIRSKI-MITE PLUS.
