Adult predatory mites seek their prey or wait for it to pass by and feed on it.
Application of Swirski-Mite Plus
Use the envelopes as soon as possible after receiving them.
Hang the envelopes in protected areas in the crop (not exposed to direct sunlight).
The measures that favor the humidity in the envelope, such as the placement of the envelope with the lower part on the humid substrate, lengthen its useful life
The envelopes can be placed directly in the crop (the envelopes already have an exit hole)
Envelopes should be handled by the cardboard strip at the top, since predatory mites are easily damaged
Optimal handling conditions of Swirski-Mite Plus
The predatory mite is not susceptible to diapause and, therefore, can be introduced in winter. It is tolerant to high temperatures. The population of swirskii begins to develop when daytime temperatures regularly exceed 20-22 ° C.
Because biological beneficial organisms have a very short life cycle, they should be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after reception. Otherwise, its quality could be impaired.
