Best choice for an active infestation.
Our adult predatory mites serve as a natural solution for tackling mite infestations. These small but effective predators feed on all life stages of unwanted pests in your garden, promoting a balanced ecosystem. They work swiftly to reduce mild to moderate infestations, and for more severe cases, adjusting the quantity and frequency of their application may be necessary.
SLOW RELEASE SACHETS:
Don't fight pests, prevent them.
It's much simpler to prevent garden pests than to handle a full-blown infestation later on. Take a proactive approach by using our sachets, which contain a combination of predatory mites at different life stages. They gradually release pest control agents into your garden, ensuring ongoing protection. When aiming for a healthy garden, prioritizing preventative care is crucial. Incorporate monthly releases of these sachets into your Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.
Release 2-5 per square foot, bi-weekly as needed.
Temperature Range: 43° - 98° F.
Humidity: 40% - 90%.
Hang one sachet per 6 square feet, every 2-4 weeks.
It's important to note that these release rates serve as general guidelines and may vary based on the specific pest species, the crop or plant being treated, and level of infestation. Proper monitoring of the infestation and the subsequent effectiveness of the released beneficial insect population is crucial for determining the success of the biological control strategy.
Make use of Gardening Zone's Hanging Release Boxes for a clean and efficient method of deploying predatory mites. These release boxes are designed to concentrate the mites specifically on infested areas, allowing for targeted pest control without any mess.
Predatory mites are susceptible to pesticides. Avoid spraying plants one week before or after releasing predators. Some materials may be toxic to predators for up to four weeks.
For best results, release within 24 hours of receipt. If storage is necessary, store at 42°-48°F for no longer than 48 hours.
