Phytoseiulus is one of the best methods for controlling red spider mite and is widely used by both amateur gardeners and commercial growers. They are tiny predatory beneficial mites, shiny orange and fast moving, they feed on the eggs, young and adults of the spider mite. Phytoseiulus breed very rapidly and spread across foliage, ideal for both inside and outside.
The mites look actively for prey (all life stages of the red spider mite) and suck them empty. The ideal temperature for predatory mites is between 15 and 25°C.
One bottle contains 1000 mites. Appliation is approx 10 mites per sq.m.
One bootle treats up to 100sq.m
Phytoseiulus are very effective and in the right conditions can achieve a complete clean up in several weeks. For severe outbreaks it is recommended that a further treatment is used two weeks later.
If you want to order two treatments at once just select the date for the first order then add to basket then the second date and add that to the basket.

Apply mites repeatedly by inverting the bottle over spider-mite-infested-leaves.
Each inversion delivers a measured amount of vermiculite.
Tap and roll bottle before re-opening it.
Leave empty bottle open on infected plants to allow any remaining predators to escape.
