ABOUT PREDATORY MITES:
Spider mites pose a significant threat to plants, but there's a solution: natural predators. Predatory mites, those tiny insects, play a crucial role in managing spider mite populations effectively.
The use of predatory mites offers several advantages when it comes to controlling spider mites. Firstly, they present a natural and non-toxic approach. Unlike chemical pesticides that can harm beneficial insects and leave harmful residues in the environment, predatory mites are completely safe to use around humans, pets, and wildlife. This makes them a preferred choice for environmentally conscious gardeners.
Another benefit is that predatory mites can complement other natural control methods. For instance, regular pruning and washing of plants with a forceful stream of water can be combined with the introduction of predatory mites to ensure a comprehensive approach. By using this eco-friendly combination, you can effectively maintain spider mite populations in check and promote the overall health and vitality of your plants.
In summary, by harnessing the power of predatory mites, you can combat spider mite infestations in a natural, safe, and environmentally friendly manner, safeguarding your plants and encouraging their continued growth and well-being.
If you've recently used pesticides, be sure to check the chemical compatibility with your predatory mites. We've compiled a list of some common chemicals as a resource.
PREDATORY MITES IN BOTTLES vs SLOW RELEASE SACHETS:
Ideal solution for active infestations.
When faced with an active infestation of mites, our bottled adult predatory mites offer the best choice. These natural predators efficiently target and consume all life stages of unwanted pests, effectively restoring balance to your garden's ecosystem. Our beneficial insects act swiftly to reduce light to moderate infestations. For more severe infestations, a higher quantity and more frequent application may be necessary.
Slow Release Sachets:
Prevent pests before they become a problem.
Taking preventative measures to avoid garden pests is much simpler than dealing with a full-blown outbreak of troublesome bugs. Stay one step ahead by being proactive and preventing the problem altogether. Our sachets contain a blend of predatory mites at different life stages, ensuring a gradual and consistent release of pest control agents in your garden. When it comes to maintaining a healthy garden, prioritizing preventative care is paramount. Integrate monthly releases of slow-release sachets into your Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program for optimal results.
