Thrips are a serious pest to many plant types, especially those grown in greenhouses. Thrips are tiny pencil shaped insects that damage plants by piercing the plant cells and sucking out their contents. This results in the area where they are feeding turning silver grey. Plant vigour is reduced , flowers are damaged and fruit becomes mis-shapen. Thrips can also spread viruses.

Predatory mites can be used to combat thrip populations. The most commonly used one is called; Amblyseius cucumeris. This tiny predator feeds on young thrip larvae but does not eat the adults. This means a constant supply of predators should be kept on the plant to break the life cycle.

This can be achieved with breeder sachets of predators. Each sachet contains up to 1000 predatory mites, which are released for up to 4-5 weeks. The sachets have a small food supply inside them to help the predators feed and breed. Thrip Killer sachets should only be used indoors and when temperatures are over 15.c. Replace every 4-6 weeks. It is also a good idea to hang up yellow sticky traps near the plants to catch thrip adults.

  • Thrip Killer sachets 50 is supplied as  50 breeder sachets, which are hung on plants.
  • Thrip Killer sachets provide biological and chemical free control of thrips
  • Thrip Killer predatory mites will feed on western flower thrip and onion thrip

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.

Androlis is available in 3 sizes M, L XL
