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.


BioSwirski arrives in a shaker containing 25K or 50K mobile stages (adults and juveniles) of A. swirskii.

The product is mixed with a bran-based media and includes a dosing cap that facilitates application.

BioSwirski is also available in sachets of 250 predatory mites each.


Application with the shaker:

  • The product should be transported to the crop site in the insulated shipping boxes.
  • Disperse the BioSwirski mites over the plant as close as possible to the time of receipt.
  • Before releasing, gently rotate the container to evenly mix the mites and bran-based media.
  • The mites are released by turning the shaker cap to the desired opening and gently tapping the container over the plants while walking between the rows of crops.
  • Do not expose to direct sunlight.

Application with the sachets:

  • The product should be transported to the crop site in the insulated shipping boxes.
  • The sachets should only be removed from the shipping boxes when ready to apply.
  • Hang the BioSwirski sachets on the plant as close as possible to the time of receipt.
  • Do not expose to direct sunlight.

Suggested Application: Apply 10 mites per square foot.

Please note that the frequency and amount of BioSwirski to be released is determined by the type of crop, environmental conditions, level of infestation and damage incurred by the pest.
