BIOCUCUMERIS PREDATORY MITE

 

BioCucumeris (Neoseiulus cucumeris) is a predatory mite widely used in the control of immature thrips (egg and larvae) as well as other species of mites. Although very small (1mm), BioCucumeris can be recognized by its oblong shape and quick mobility along the underside of leaves and in flowers.

Its ability to feed on pollen makes it an effective early prevention agent.
