Aphids | Spider Mites | Thrips and Fungus Gnats

Predatory Mites:

We have just received word from our supplier that we will not be receiving any summer ladybugs this year.

This is a shock to us, as this is the first time this has happened in Bobs experience with ladybugs, which goes back to 1992.  Commercial ladybugs come from California, and are collected from migrating swarms that escape the summer heat in the valley to the much cooler foothills nearby.  We have had a “perfect storm” created by the combination of a prolonged drought (which is not that unusual) with the wildfires that made the news this past fall, which likely destroyed many of these hibernation sites.

Spider Mite Control:

Mighty Mites (Phytoseiulus persimilis):

Persimilis is the only species of mite that will actually go into webbing to feed on spider mites and get your pest problem under control!  It is the best, but also fussy, and needs relatively high humidity (60%) and is not at all compatible with pesticides.

1,000 Mites (22750): $56.00 on vermiculite (for areas ~500 square feet) 

               Buy 3 or more: $40.00

2,000 Mites (22751): $76.00 on vermiculite - smaller "hot spot" vial (for areas ~500-1000 sq. feet)

               Buy 3 or more: $60.00

(Ordering Help: it is better to buy 1 bottle of P.p. per room, as it is almost impossible to divide up a bottle evenly between separate growing areas)

3,000 Mites (22752): $92.00 on bean leaves (contain pest spider mites) (>1000sq.ft)

1,250 Mites (22703): $84.00 on bean leaves. contains small amount of spider mites as food during transit - suited for outdoor areas up to 5000 sq. feet

2,500 Mites (22704): $115.00 on bean leaves - contains small amounts of spider mites as food during transit- suited for outdoor areas only 5000+ sq. feet

Hot Mites (N. fallacis):

It's never a bad idea to introduce fallacis

alongside persimilis, as this mite will stick around and feed on pollen while preventing spider mites from re-establishing. They're a one-time introduction, and will feed on a 

variety of pest mites, and can be used indoors and outdoors, on conifer hedges, berries, and bamboo, for example. You can divide up the fallacis between different rooms, which you cannot with persimlis.

500 Mites (22701): $45.00 on vermiculite. suited for areas up to 2500 sq. feet

bug logo no background.png

Stethorus (Stethorus punctillum):

Stethorus are meant to be used as "hot spot" treatment, alongside the mite predators above.  They are expensive to rear (and for you to purchase), so realistically are to be used as a supplement.  They will fly freely to find new mite spots. Read more...
