On the Grow Shop Piensa En Verde, we are fans of ecology, so put special attention to the Biological struggle. This treatment plants, is to seek natural predators of pests.
Therefore we offer, 5000 Amblyseius californicus larvae to combat spider mites. We can use it with Phytoseiulus to get the best result. We may also use it as a preventative although no plague. If red spider is present, introducing 500 to 2000 / m2. Repeat the release if necessary. You must enter when the first red spiders, which usually appear on the underside of the leaves appear.
What should we know of the plagues of red spiders?
The red spider is one of the worst pests that can be found growers and unfortunately is very common. Early identification of the pest is essential to eradicate it quickly with the means we have at our disposal. Periodically monitors the underside of leaves in search of small black dots (eggs) and adults or even cobwebs.
Upon detection of the pest, perform a treatment, Mittel and if necessary, a second treatment with potassium soap + pyrethrin.
It is advisable to first treat the plant and then release predators. You must not forget that when you introduce Amblyseius Calfornicus, any insecticide / acaricide treatment also do damage to the predator.
