Swirskii-Long-Life-System – delivering long-lasting whitefly and thrips control

Predators released over extended 8-week period

  • True generalist – voracious predatory mite Amblyseius (Typhlodromips) swirskii has a preference for greenhouse and tobacco whitefly eggs and larvae as well as young thrips larvae
  • Also eats - spider and tarsonemid mite
  • Adapted to high temperatures – active up to temperatures of 40°C
  • For optimal population growth - use alternative food source Nutrimite™ to help create ‘standing army’

Why are long life breeding sachets so effective?

  • Sachets contain food – bran carrier and factitious prey - for the predatory mites
  • A. swirskii mites multiply inside the sachets and disperse into the crop
  • Continual release of predatory mites over eight weeks
