Predatory mite Neoseiulus (Amblyseius) californicus targets the two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae), and has also shown predation on:

  • fruit tree red spider mite, also known as European red mite (Panonychus ulmi)
  • citrus red mite (Panonynchus citri)
  • broad mite (Polyphagotarsonemus latus)
  • cyclamen mite (Tarsonemus pallidus)

These predatory mites also survive on other mites and pollen, can survive for a number of weeks without food, and tolerates high temperatures and low humidity.

Remarks:  For curative control, use N.californicus in conjunction with P.persimilis.  However, as N.californicus will predate P.persimilis, consider P.persimilis for initial application and "hot-spots" with follow-up applications of N.californicus on a 2 - 3 week rotation.
