Introduce Phytoseiulus regularly every 4 weeks where RSM is a recurring problem, especially where plants are being moved to and from the greenhouse and new plants are being brought in. This is common in a busy greenhouse during the growing season and makes RSM particularly difficult to control i.e. you may be taking the bio control out and bring RSM in. In commercial greenhouses they combat this problem by introducing phyto regularly through the season - you too can now have regular introductions. Start introducing Phytoseiulus AS SOON as you see RSM and the temp is 16C/61F. Our 1000 Phytoseiulus Programme consist of regular introductions of 1000 phyto sent at 4 weekly intervals. We offer a 3, 4 & 5 introductions.
- Choose between a 3, 4 or 5 introduction programme.
- This programme contains 1000 Phytoseiulus per delivery.
- The 1st 1000 Phyto will be sent during the week choosen on the order confimation page.
- We will continue to send 1000 Phyto every 4 weeks until the end of your programme.
- If any of the programme dates are inconvenient, simply email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) the alternative dates and we will alter the programme accordingly.
Control Red Spider Mite by introducing Phytoseiulus AS SOON as you see RSM and the temp is 16°C/61°F (& below 30°C/86°F). Phytoseiulus is a tiny, harmless mite with a BIG appetite for Red Spider Mite. Ideal for use in conservatories / greenhouses / growrooms / hydroponic systems.
Phytoseiulus has been used commercially since the 1960's to effectively control RSM and now you can use it to control RSM on your plants. Phytoseiulus is a tiny mite, slightly smaller than a RSM and it feeds on all stages of the RSM eating up to 5 adults or 25 young larvae/eggs per day. Phytoseiulus is supplied in small tubes containing 1000 or 2000 adults. The contents of the tube (inc. the vermiculite they are packed in) is simply sprinkled over the infected plants. If the infestation of RSM is very heavy and there is webbing at the tips of the plants, break up the webs first with your fingers or with a feather duster and spray the plant with SB Invigorator, concentrating on the underside of the leaves. Help the Phytoseiulus by increasing the humidity (spray the underside of the leaves with soft water) and keep the temperature above 16°C (but below 30°C). Also group infected plants together, so the Phyto can "chase" the RSM from plant to plant.
