Pest Control Insects
Phytoseiulus persimilis/Neoseiulus californicus/Mesoseiulus longipes mix. Each spider-mite predator sucks the juice out of about 5 spider-mites a day, or 20 of their eggs. They also breed twice as fast! Used as directed, predators should noticeably begin to gain control within 4 weeks, and then continue until the spider-mites are nearly or completely wiped out. Shipped live and ready for use. Comes with complete instructions.
NOTE: Benefical insects will be shipped immediately when ordered unless prior arrangements have been made with our office. Delayed shipments are not always possible. Additional shipping charges may be applied to delayed shipments.

Biological controls have been used for thousands of years and they should be a part of your pest control program. Beneficial insects work by attacking pest insects and thus reducing their numbers. It is important to note that total elimination of pests is not required to grow good crops; it is only necessary to reduce pests below the damage threshold for the crop being grown. When using beneficial insects, it is important to avoid disruptive chemicals. Complete instructions included with each order.
All our beneficial insects are available year-round except the Praying Mantis eggs, which are not available August through December. We recommend releasing beneficial insects outdoors from April through September, based on your local weather conditions. They may be released in your greenhouse anytime. Sorry, not available to HI or Canada.
