Hypoaspis miles: Feeds on Fungus Gnats, Root Aphids, Western Flower Thrips. Hypoaspis is a native species of soil-dwelling mites which feed on small insects and other mites. This tiny (0.5 mm) light-brown predatory mite naturally inhabits the top 1/2” layer of soil where fungus gnats, where spring tails and thrips pupae dwell. The female Hypoaspis mites lay their eggs in the soil, which hatch in 1-2 days. Populations of Hypoaspis include both sexes, but the males are much smaller and rarely seen. Each Hypoaspis mite will consume 1-5 prey or eggs per day. They survive by feeding on algae and/or plant debris when insects are not available. Their entire life cycle is 7-11 days.
