Bio CucumerisSKU: 6603800
Neoseiulus cucumeris is a predatory mite that feeds on the larval stage of thrips, especially western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis). They also feed on mites, such as two-spotted spider mites (Tetranychus urticae), broad mites (Polyphagotarsonemus latus), russet mites (Aceria anthocoptes), cyclamen mites (Phytonemus pallidus), and can survive on pollen or Artemia, making them an excellent preventative biocontrol agent.
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.
