Swirskii (Amblyseius swirskii)

Amblyseius swirskii is an efficient predatory mite used for the control of young stages of the western flower thrips as well as the eggs and young nymphs of white flies. It is a good option for thrips and whitefly management on many ornamental and vegetable crops.  It also feeds on red spider mites as well as on broad mites.

Main targets are immature thrips (various species) and whitefly eggs and larvae.  Also targets broad and cyclamen mites as well as pollen.

The mites are pale yellow to pale tan while their eggs are white and oval shaped.

Swirskii does not hibernate and develops will in warm, humid environments. Controls thrips at warmer temperatures than cucumeris mites.
