Bio PersimilisSKU: TL06600005
Phytoseiulus persimilis is a predatory mite used to control web-spinning spider mites such as two-spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae), red/carmine spider mite (Tetranychus cinnabarinus), and strawberry spider mite (Tetranychus turkestani Ugarov & Nicolski). It develops twice as fast as its prey and is considered an outstanding efficient natural predator. It is able to suppress mite infestations quickly and thoroughly, and effective at spreading through plant contact in many crops.
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.
