Fungus Fly predator mites contains 10,000 predatory mites called Stratiolaelaps scimitus. They have just been re-named and were known as Hypoaspis miles. These tiny predatory mites are normally oberved in and at soil level feeding on eggs and larvae of  fungus fly [ sciarid fly larvae ] , springtails and  thrip pupae. More recently they have been observed and used for control of mites that attack snakes and ornamental snails.

The predator mites can also survive quite long periods without food, up to 4 weeks. However egg laying will cease if no food supply. They prefer to live dark damp places , where the soil or growing media is moist but not to wet. Predator mite 10000 is supplied with some storage mites mixed in with the carrier material. These mites are harmless and provide an additional food supply for the predatory mites during transport.

On receipt of Predator mite 10,000, keep the bottle horizontal and apply within 1-2 days of receipt.

Application against Fungus fly larvae [ sciarid ], springtails and thrip pupae:

  • Turn and shake the bottle before use
  • Spread the contents of the bottle evenly on the soil/growing media or rockwool blocks
  • Minimum temperature should be 15.c

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
