Armoured scales are sap sucking insects that attack many indoor growing plants, especially those grown in warm or tropical conditions. Armoured scales differ to soft scales in that their cover is not fixed to their body like soft scales. They do not produce honeydew but they can inject poisonous substances into plants  that can harm plants, leading to yellow spots on leaves and discolouration of the plants.

Natural enemies of Armoured scales include ; Chilocorus nigritus. Scale Insect predator larvae contains 10 of these predators. These larvae feed on the scales and develop into adult beetles that also feed on the Scale insects. The temperatures need to be above 20.c for establishment and they like humid conditions. On receipt of the larvae they should be gently brushed onto the infected plants , close to scale insects. Do not spray insecticides after they are applied. Apply between April-September.

  • Natural pest control of armoured scales using their natural enemies
  • Insecticide free and safe to the applicator, the plant and the environment

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.

It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult.

Red bird mite [ Dermanyssus gallinae ] causes significant stress to infected birds and anemia, which  sometimes leads to death. Birds show signs of nervousness and even cannibalism.

Chickens/ hens  and other birds infected with Red Mite also see a drop in egg laying.

ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.

Androlis is available in 3 sizes M, L XL
