Product description

AMBLYcontrol (500 sachets without hook) for the control of thrips

Amblyseius cucumeris
AMBLYcontrol contains the predatory mite Amblyseius cucumeris from the family Phytoseiidae. A. cucumeris is probably the best known predatory mite against thrips. The predatory mites cover the entire plant and are always looking for food. Besides thrips, A. cucumeris can also survive on pollen and can therefore be used preventatively in pollen-producing crops. Amblyseius cucumeris does not damage the crop or flowers. The predatory mites mainly eat the first larval stage of thrips. In addition, they have a strong side effect on spider mites. Due to their short life cycle, they can multiply rapidly and their number is part of their strength.

AMBLYcontrol should be used at an early stage of pest development. The predatory mite can be used in many different crops where thrips occur.

Product characteristics

  • The short life cycle of the predatory mite results in rapid reproduction.
  • Good side effect on spider mite.
  • Can be used in many different crops.
  • Available in various formulations.

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

Amblyseius cucumeris is delivered in a box containing 500 breeding sachets without hook. The minimum quantity per sachet is 1,000 predatory mites.

Instructions for use
Keep the product cool until use. Allow the product to reach (greenhouse) temperature gradually. Avoid too rapid an increase in temperature, this can lead to a temperature shock for the predatory mites. Open the box with the bags in the crop. Tear the bags apart along the perforations. Distribute the breeding bags as evenly as possible over the crop in a place that is sheltered from the sun. Avoid contact with heating pipes and CO2 pipes. The application rate always depends on the pest pressure in the crop, so ask the product specialist for the correct dosage.
