Bio StratiolaelapsSKU: 6606745
Stratiolaelaps scimitus (formerly Hypoaspis miles) is a soil-dwelling mite capable of the prevention, control, and management of sciarid flies, shore flies, and many soil pests, including the soil-dwelling stage of various thrips. Both the adults and larvae are voracious predators, and they are good at spreading through the crop, even potted crops. They eat and reproduce in both soil and soilless media.

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.
