Application Thripor-I

  • Shake bottle gently before use
  • Spread material on clean rock wool slabs, leaves and/or in application boxes (Dibox)
  • Apply in groups of 75-100 insects in order to establish a population and encourage mating. In this way it is possible to check on reproduction
  • Make sure the material remains undisturbed in the introduction site for a few days
  • Peel-off label can be used to mark the location of the product’s introduction

Orius lays a large proportion of its eggs in (side) shoots. Avoid unnecessary loss of these eggs by applying Thripor directly after removing side shoots.
