Overview

Don’t wait for spider mites to ravage your plants! Prevent infestations with these 100% natural predator sachets. They don’t cost much but virtually eliminate the chance of an outbreak.


They slowly release spider mite predators (neoseiulus californicus) over 2 weeks to thwart any oncoming attacks. Just 1 – 2 sachets per plant every 3-4 weeks is enough.


The predators themselves don’t harm your plants – just the mites that would feast on them.


You don’t need to rip or tear sachets – just hang them from plants or place them in propagators, job done.


They’re the easy answer to a big problem – for the sake of just £1.25 per sachet you’d be foolish not to use them.

The Science

These small sachets contain spider mite predators (neoseiulus californicus), which slowly emerge from holes in the sachet over 2 weeks.


If ever a spider mite sneaks in, it gets gobbled up by a hungry predator before it does any damage.


The predators in these sachets won’t damage your plant (neoseiulus californicus) eat:


• Two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae)
• Fruit spider mite (Panonychus ulmi)
• Citrus red mite (Panonynchus citri)
• Begonia mite (Tarsonemus pallidus)
• Broad mite (Polyphagotarsonemus latus)


They’re great for preventing any infestations, but if you use them to combat established colonies, they’re unlikely to work. Instead, you’ll need to use a Predator Bottle instead – they contain a more aggressive bug, phytoseiulus persimilis.


 

How to Use

Number of Sachets:


1 or 2 in a propagator, 1 per plant (vegetative growth) & 1 or 2 per plant (flowering) every 3 – 4 weeks.


When to Use


Ideally you should use Spider Mite Predators Sachets before any kind of bug problem exists, from the beginning of a crop until harvest.


Fresh sachets (check for the week number on the packaging) will last for up to 4 weeks in the grow room if kept in conditions of 25oC and 60-70% Relative Humidity.


A final application of fresh predators is recommended 4/5 weeks into flowering – this will protect plants through to harvest.


In a Propagator:


Lean 1 – 2 sachets against the sides of your propagator or against propagation cubes.


Hanging from Plants:


As soon as your plants are able to support the weight of a sachet, attach 1 – 2 sachets to the leaves of each plant for good coverage.


Make sure you change the supply every 3-4 weeks


Do Not:
Never cut or tear sachets – predators emerge from tiny holes already in the sachets.
