  • Turn and shake gently before use
  • Sprinkle material on leaves or apply on crop with mechanical blower

Environmental conditions
Relative humidity should be above 75% and the temperature above 20°C/68°F for some hours of the day. THRIPEX-V contains a strain of Neoseiulus cucumeris which is not susceptible to diapause. Therefore the predators can be used all year.

Storage and handling
Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Storing them for a period can have a negative impact on their quality and is only possible under the conditions described below. Koppert B.V. is not liable for any loss of quality if the product is stored for longer than recommended and/or under incorrect conditions.

  • Apply on day of receipt
  • Storage temperature: 8-10°C
  • In the dark (bottles horizontally)


  • THRIPEX-V (THRIPEX in vermiculite) is the safest product for sensitive crops.


  • Mobile stages: beige-pink, droplet shaped, 'pushed down' position on short legs, often at hidden places like along veins and in the flowers. 
  • Eggs: transparant white, attached to leaf hairs along veins on the underside of leaves

Mode of action
Adult predatory mites search actively for their prey and suck it dry.

The introduction rates of this product should be adjusted to the mode of action of the product and the results that can be expected in the crop where the product is applied. Your local Koppert consultant or recognized distributor will be able to advise you further.

Only use products that are permitted in your country/state and crop. Check local registration requirements.
