Product description

Anderline to combat spider mites


Amblyseius andersoni
Anderline contains the predatory mite Amblyseius andersoni. The predatory mite is an important fighter of spider mites (Tetranychus urticae). It also affects other spider mite species such as: fruit spider mite, citrus mite and various gall and rust mite species. In addition, Andersoni also develops on pollen and thrips. For this reason, even in the absence of spider mite on alternative food sources, Andersoni can maintain itself in the crop. The predatory mite is already active from 6 °C and occurs naturally in Dutch shrubs and trees. A. andersoni is therefore native and can survive well in our climate. Early in spring, with the emergence of the first (spider mites), A. andersoni is already active and therefore the suitable predatory mite to suppress the pest at an early stage. A. andersoni is very resistant to high temperatures and/or low humidity and is therefore extremely suitable for along facades in greenhouses.

Quality control
At Royal Brinkman, a team of specialists checks the quality of beneficial insects, mites and nematodes. Based on a protocol, they work to deliver the best quality to the customers. 

Anderline is delivered per 100 gemini bags. The contents of a culture bag consists of various stages of Andersoni predatory mites, feed mites and carrier (bran). In the bags there is continuous production of Amblyseius andersoni. Over a period of four to six weeks, dosed large numbers of predatory mites are released from the small holes in the bags.

Anderline is also available as:

  • Mini: small culture bags with a hook.  More sachets with fewer predatory mites will provide more outlets, allowing a better distribution of predatory mites throughout the crop.
    Gemini: waterproof twin bags. Applicable in crops with watering from above.  Fold the twin bag on the tear - rim (with the printed side outwards) and hang it over a trunk, branch or wire.
    Stick: small grow bags on a stick. Used in propagation and strawberries on racks. Place the stick in the growing substrate close to the plant.
    Bugline: a ribbon with culture cells. Used in crops that grow in beds / rows or on plant tables. Place the ribbon horizontally between the crop with the printed side up. 
    Loose material: For a quick introduction of predatory mites. Due to the composition of the carrier, the material can be both scattered and blown.

Instruction for use
Keep product cool until use. Allow the product to cool down to (greenhouse) temperature. Prevent too rapid an increase in temperature, this can lead to a temperature shock for the predatory mites. Open the box with the (twin) bags in the crop. Fold the twin bag and hang it over a trunk, branch or wire with the printed side facing outwards. Hang the bags in a place sheltered from the sun. Avoid contact with heating and CO2 pipes. The degree of use always depends on the pest pressure in the crop, so ask the product specialist for the correct dosage.
