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 Amblyseius cucumeris which is not susceptible to diapause. Therefore the predators can be used all year.

 

Storage and handling

  • 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.

'THRIPEX in vermiculite' is the safest product for sensitive crops.

 

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!

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.
