Product Description

Ships via Overnight methods on Tuesdays Only. Minimum 7-day lead time prior to shipment. See Shipping Info for details. Amblyseius cucumeris predatory mites are primarily thrips predators, but will also feed on a range of mite species in different environments. Tan colored and about 0.5mm long, they can be slow to establish – 4-8 weeks under ideal conditions – meaning they are best used for prevention and low-level management of thrips infestations. Control is often seen 3 weeks after release. They will find alternate food sources* in the absence of prey. It is important to pair A. cucumeris with a suitable mite predator for control of any of the listed pest mites if populations are established. Target Prey: Immature Thrips, Two-Spotted Spider Mites, Cyclamen Mites & Broad Mites Key Features: Wide range of food sources. Highly compatible with S. scimitus, rove beetles and minute pirate bugs for thrips control. Often combined with A. andersoni for mite control. Sustain themselves in low pest levels. Multiple release types allows for variable uses in different growing environments. Optimal Conditions: 68°-77°F, 65-70% relative humidity Release Rates & Recommendations: Release A. cucumeris when thrips populations are low. Early season monitoring can be done with blue or yellow sticky traps. Moisture and humidity help increase hatch rates; however, sachets should be kept dry when applying. Do not use with A. swirskii. Some crops, including tomatoes & other highly resinous crops, require higher release rates. Preventive Release Rates – Make initial releases before thrips issues develop to allow A. cucumeris to establish. This can take 4-8 weeks. Shaker Tubes in Vermiculite/Bran: 10-20 mites per sq. ft. or 100-200 per square meter. Make weekly broadcast applications. Mini-Sachets/Sachets on Sticks: Apply one sachet per propagation tray or plant. Repeat applications every 4 weeks. Spot Treatment Release Rates (Acute Treatment) – Use when isolated areas of pest pressure are present. Shaker Tubes in Vermiculite/Bran: Apply 20-40 mites per sq. ft. (100-400 per square meter). Reapply weekly in broadcast applications until pest issues have subsided. This Product Controls These Pests or Diseases: Bean Thrips (Caliothrips fasciatus), Broad Mites, Russet Mites, Spider Mites, Thrips**, Western Flower Thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis) * Without prey, N. cucumeris will feed on the eggs and immature life stages of P. persimilis, all stages of A. swirskii along with pollen available on the plants. ** When controlling established thrips populations, consider using Minute Pirate Bugs to gain control and A. cucumeris to maintain control.

The botanicals are all food grade GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) materials. SNS 244 RTU Natural Fungicide is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticides exempted under FIFRA section 25(b). Airborne 'pathogenic' or disease causing fungi get inside the plant either by contacting its skin (epidermis), or by growing in through the plant's breathing holes (stomata). Then they either poison and kill the plant cells before absorbing food from them or simply steal nutrients from the living cells. Some fungi live in the soil and enter into the roots. They can either block the water-conducting cells or kill them, causing the plant to wilt. In many cases the plant is seriously damaged or may even die. As a topical spray SNS-244 Natural Fungicide kills the fungus through a biochemical interaction on the spores. Some of the components of SNS-244 Natural Fungicide are also absorbed systemically by the plant, suppressing the life cycle of the fungal spores and nurturing the plant cells to increase the plant's ability to fight the disease.Trifecta Crop Control SC is a Super Concentrated pesticide, fungicide, and miticide. It treats and prevents problem mites, aphids, whiteflies, fungus gnats, thrips, powdery mildew, botrytis, and other pests and fungal/mildew issues.Doktor Doom® Spider Mite Knock Out® is a 0.20% pyrethrin formula. This formula is 19 times stronger in active ingredient pyrethrin than any soap-based insecticides and 10 times stronger than any formulations that contain pyrethrin & piperonyl butoxide. Piperonyl butoxide is a synergist that enhances the killing power of pyrethrin and it is not approved for organic gardening. Unlike soap-based products which need to be applied liberally to the plant in order to drown the insects Doktor Doom® Spider Mite Knock Out® kills the pests on contact with just a light misting on the foliage. Apply Doktor Doom® Spider Mite Knock Out® to the underside of the leaves and then fog the room with a Doktor Doom® Fogger. The smell of pyrethrin flushes out and eradicates insect pests on contact.insecticide and fungicide for preventative and outbreaks effective against: Powdery Mildew, Botrytis (Gray Mold), Mites, Aphids, Whiteflies, Thrips, Fungus Gnats 1.
