Mighty Mite 1000 gives you even more Mighty mite predators for control of many soil borne pests including sciarid fly [ fungnus gnats] and thrip pupae. This hungry mite has also been observed feeding on springtails, woodlice  and maggots of housefly, Blowfly, Stable fly and even vine weevil larvae.

Mighty Mite 1000 contains the predatory mite; Macrocheles robustulus. This predatory mite is a soil dwelling predator and feeds on insect larvae and small insect pests it finds in or on compost or soil.

Professional growers use this predator as a routine treatment to keep young plants free from sciarid fly larvae, which can cause young plants or seedlings to die either by root damage or plant diseases spread by the sciarid larvae.Dragonfli offers you this useful biological control weapon as the product Mighty Mite.

Mighty Mite is supplied in a bottle of vermiculite, which acts as a carrier to transport the predatory mites and for applying the mites. Rotate the bottle before use and simply  sprinkle the mites out evenly over the compost or soil.One bottle of Mighty Mite can treat up to 4 square metres of surface area. Keep the compost or soil moist [ not soaking after application ] and a thin layer of compost can be added after application to improve the environment for Mighty Mites.

Mighty Mite need a temperature of 15C to be active. Mighty Mites are not observed on plants after application as they are soil dwelling mites.

For catching adult sciarid fly hang up yellow sticky traps above the compost or soil to catch the adults , which will fly onto the traps when disturbed. We recommend the use of yellow sticky traps with Mighty Mites in greenhouses.

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.

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.
