Bio AndersoniSKU: 6603250
Amblyseius andersoni is a predatory mite that targets many species of mites, including two-spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae), European red mite (Panonychus ulmi), broad mite (Polyphagotarsonemus latus), cyclamen mite (Phytonemus pallidus), and russet mites (Aceria anthocoptes). They will also feed on western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis), and pollen. They can be introduced into the crop as a preventative control if there are blooming flowers as an available food source, and are often used in tomatoes due to their ability to navigate through the trichomes.
Why Use Biologicals?
One of the primary benefits of using beneficial insect release is that the process avoids chemical pest control methods such as pesticides. While pesticides are effective at controlling and eliminating pests, some plants and beneficial insects like bees can be affected negatively. Beneficial insects are a natural, organic, and environmentally sustainable way to control pests.
