Greater certainty for the biological control of spider mite – that is what you will achieve with Spical Ulti-Mite. This 100% industrial compostable sachet always performs consistently, under all climatic conditions.
Three Times as Many Predatory Mites
The sachet provides a better environment for the rearing system of predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus. It can therefore build up its population in the sachet more rapidly and effectively. Compared to regular sachets, Spical Ulti-Mite performs up to three times better.
Spider Mite Control
Neoseiulus californicus is a predatory mite with an excellent result in combating different kinds of spider mite (including two-spotted spider mite, fruit spider mite, citrus red mite and date palm mite). In addition, the predatory mite also has positive results in controlling various tarsonemid mites.
Spider mite can cause severe damage in many crops. These mites are located on the underside of the leaf and are therefore not only difficult to detect in time but are also difficult to reach using (chemical) pesticides. Moreover, resistance to chemical agents can build up quickly. Neoseiulus californicus mites actively search for their prey and successfully control spider mite.
Neoseiulus californicus is a beneficial which offers a great tool in the total system of spider mite control. Being able to build a system from a preventative and lightly curative approach is key for overall success during the cropping season. Introduction and establishment of its population can, especially under difficult conditions, be challenging and is crucial for releasing the numbers required for real impact. Spical Ulti-Mite offers a patented system which enables the predatory mites to settle and develop in a wide range of climatic conditions.
It works as a complementary spider mite control tool with Spidex; both predatory mite species controlling spider mite development together. There is a growing demand for controlling this devastating pest the biological way; Spical Ulti-Mite is part of the futureproof solution.
Fully Industrial Compostable
The sachet is made of a newly-developed foil and is 100% industrial compostable. It satisfies the conditions of the ‘Industrial compostable’ standard. The sachets can therefore be disposed of together with the crop waste.
