Description: predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus
Best Used: as a preventative in sub-optimal environmental conditions (grow rooms), as they are water and climate resistant. Feeds on the two spotted spider mite, fruit spider mite, citrus red mite, begonia mite, cyclamen mite, and broad mite.
Works By: breeder sachet slowly releasing californicus over a few weeks time. The adults, nymphs, and larvae will actively search for their prey and consume them. Do not open sachets upon arrival, as they already come with a pin sized hole for the predatory mites to walk out of.
Suggested Application Rate: 2.5-1/m2 if plants touch or 1/plant if plants do not touch. This will also depend on pest pressure and crop type.
Packaging: box with 500 sachets. Each sachet contains 100 predatory mites and supplemental food mixed with bran.
