When to use Swirski-Mite LD?

Use Swirski-Mite LD for biological pest control of young larvae of various thrips species, eggs and larvae of whitefly (both Trialeurodes vaporariorum and Bemisia tabaci) and tarsonemid mites (Polyphagotarsonemus latus). Use Swirski-Mite as a preventive method and when the first signs of a pest appear.

How does Swirski-Mite LD work?

Adult predatory mites search for their prey or wait for it to pass by and subsequently feed on their prey.

How to use Swirski-Mite LD

Application Swirski-Mite LD

  • Use sachets as soon as possible after receipt
  • Hang sachets in sheltered locations on the crop
  • Do not place in direct sunglight
  • For best results place sachets so that the bottom is touching the moist substrate. This will increase the longevity of the product.
  • Sachets can be placed directly into the crop (sachets already have an exit hole)
  • Handle sachets by the cardboard strip at the top; predatory mites are easily damaged

Best working conditions Swirski-Mite LD

The predatory mite is not susceptible to diapause and therefore can also be introduced during the winter time. It is also tolerant to high temperatures.
