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
