Application Thripex-Plus

  • Hang sachets on the crop (sachets already have an exit hole)
  • Hang sachets in sheltered positions on the crop (no direct sunlight).
  • For best results place sachets so that the bottom is touching the moist substrate. This will increase the longevity of the product.
  • Hold sachets by the cardboard strip at the top. The predatory mites are easily damaged

Please note Thripex Plus contains grain mites and bran. These mites might cause slight damage to some crops, especially with a large number of mites and high humidity. Therefore, consult your supplier prior to using Thripex. It is recommended to carry out a small field test to monitor the effects.

Precautions: In case of mechanical application inhalation of the product may cause sensitization. A dust mask is recommended as protection for operators and people working near place of application.

Best working conditions Thripex-Plus

The predatory mite is not susceptible to diapause and therefore can be applied all year round. Relative humidity should be above 75% and the temperature above 20°C/68°F for some hours of the day.
