Introduction

  • Hang sachets in the crop
  • Sachets already have exit hole
  • Hold sachets by the cardboard strip at the top. The predatory mites are easily damaged

Environmental conditions
Relative humidity should be above 75% and the temperature above 20°C/68°F for some hours of the day. THRIPEX-PLUS 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.

  • Storage after receipt: 1-2 days
  • Storage temperature: 10-15°C/50-59°F

Remarks
The product THRIPEX-PLUS contains grain mites (Tyrophagus putrescentiae) and bran. These mites may cause slight damage to some crops, especially when growing conditions are humid and grain mites are present in large numbers. Consult your supplier prior to use. Small field test is recommended on crops or varieties lacking experiences.

Appearance

  • 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.

Important!
