Cucumeris (Neoseiulus cucumeris)
Amblyseius cucumeris is a predatory mite widely used in the bio-control of immature thrips (egg and larvae) as well as other species of mites. Although very small (grows to a length of 0.02-0.04 in.) cucumeris 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.
Main target pests are Larval stages of western flower thrips. Also targets other thrips larvae, broad mite, two-spotted spider mite, cyclamen mite and pollen.
This mite performs well under cooler temperatures and is often used for thrips prevention early in the season or in northern climates.
