Introduction

  • Turn and shake gently before use
  • Disperse material manually onto leaves, disperse throughout the crop using a blower, or - only in the case of buckets - scatter the material in little heaps onto stone-wool pots using a scoop 2.5 ml per plant, opposite the trickler
  • When introduced on rockwool blocks the heaps keep on producing predatory mites for some weeks. Mites leave the heap to disperse in the crop

 

Environmental conditions

Relative humidity should be above 75% and the temperature above 20°C/68°F for some hours of the day. THRIP KILLER contains a strain of Neoseiulus cucumeris which is not susceptible to diapause. Therefore the predators can be used all year.

 

Storage and handling

Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt.

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
