Phytoseiulus for Red Spider Mite
Red Spider Mite (RSM) is a major pest in greenhouses and conservatories. Use Phytoseiulus to control RSM naturally - introduce the Phytoseiulus once the pest is present and the average daytime temp is 16c.
Phytoseiulus is a tiny, harmless mite that 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 a minimum of 1000 adults and should be introduced when the daytime temps are 16c. The contents of the tube (inc. the vermiculite they are packed in) is simply sprinkled over the infected plants. If the infestation is really heavy i.e. the plants are covered in webbing, spray with SB Invigiorator natural spray (see natural sprays for more details) 1st and THEN INTRODUCE PHYTOSEIULUS - order our emergency pack consisting of SB Invigorator Concentrate sent 1st followed by 2000 phyto 7 days later. For persistent RSM problems, introduce Phytoseiiulus regularly every 4 weeks throughout the growing season - order a programme and we will send 3 lots at 4 weekly intervals.
