Bio CalifornicusSKU: TL06603018
The predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus is used to control a variety of other mites. These include two-spotted spider mites (Tetranychus urticae), broad mites (Polyphagotarsonemus latus), cyclamen mites (Phytonemus pallidus), russet mites (Aceria anthocoptes), and some species of gall mites (Eriophyidae). Pollen can be used to help establish or support N. californicus. There are indications the N. californicus may perform better in lower humidity than other predatory mites.
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.
