Minute Pirate Bug (Orius insidiosus)

Orius insidiosus, also known as the insidiosus flower bug, is a versatile generalist predator and has a wide range of applications. Equipped with its piercing-sucking rostrum, Orius is used in dozens of agricultural crops, including ornamentals and fruiting vegetables.

Targets thrips (both adult and nymphs). Also aphids, whiteflies, mites and moth eggs.

This predatory minute pirate bug is equipped with piercing-sucking rostrum and two pairs of wings, the front pair being partially rigid. Omnivorous, it feeds on plant pollen, sap and a large variety of insect prey. The adult BioOrius female can lay between 150-200 eggs during her lifetime.

Establishes best in pollen-rich crops.

PRODUCT

BioOrius is packed in bottles containing 500, 1,000 or 2,000 adult predatory bugs, ready to feed. The bugs are mixed in a carrier material.

APPLICATION

Packaging must be kept intact until placed in the field.

Before application, gently rotate the bottle horizontally.

Apply early in the morning or late in the afternoon, under relatively mild temperatures.

Gently sprinkle on the top leaves of the plants.

Suggested Application: 1 -2 Prius per plant or 1 -4 in hot spots. For serious infestation release 500 per 250sq ft.

The amount and frequency of the application is determined by the target crop, level of infestation, weather conditions and damage inflicted to the crop.
