Orius insidiosus

Orius insidiosus is an excellent predator of thrips. Adult Orius eat all thrips stages, while younger Orius nymphs only eat thrips larvae. Orius can also feed on other prey such as aphids, mites or moth eggs. They sometimes kill more insects than strictly necessary for their own feeding. Orius also eat pollen, allowing preventive introductions in pollen bearing crops such as sweet pepper, gerbera, strawberry and eggplant.
In order to optimize control of thrips, a combined release with predatory mites, is the best strategy.
