HYPOcontrol to control sciarid fly, thrips, shore fly and duponchelia
HYPOcontrol m contains eggs, nymphs and adults of the predatory mite Stratiolaelaps scimitus (formerly known as Hypoaspis miles). Stratiolaelaps is a soil predatory mite that occurs almost everywhere. Especially in places with a lot of food (Sciara larvae) huge numbers can be reached. The soil predatory mite contributes to the control of sciarid larvae, pupating thrips larvae and eggs of the moth Duponchelia fovealis. The predatory mite is an important link in the basis of integrated control in both vegetable and ornamental cultivation. Because Stratiolaelaps scimitus predatory mites have many different soil-dwelling organisms on their menu, they can survive in almost any crop. The predatory beetle Atheta coriaria can be used against shore fly (Scatella) in addition to Stratiolaelaps. In extreme cases Stratiolaelaps can scimitus for 7 weeks without food.

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.
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. Keep the product out of direct sunlight. Immediately before use, mix the product well. This can be done by turning the bag around. Or: You can transfer the contents of the bag into a bucket and mix the material in this bucket. By mixing you realize a good distribution of mites in the material and later in your crop (so keep mixing the material during insertion). Shake out the material in small quantities over the soil, pot or substrate. Because it is a soil predatory mite, preferably do not spread the material over plant parts. Make sure there is enough moisture present, prolonged dryness will be at the expense of the population build-up. The degree of application always depends on the pest pressure in the crop, therefore ask the product specialist for the correct dosage.
User instructions Hypoaspis
Turn the bag around before use to evenly distribute the predatory mites in the packaging. Open the bag and spread the predatory mites on the substrate to be treated. Put the predatory mites in the morning or afternoon on a substrate sheltered from the sun. Rotate the bag regularly during use. Make sure the environment for the Stratiolaelaps remains moist. Prolonged drought is at the expense of population growth. The amount to be used depends on the pest pressure, the product specialist can advise on this. After throwing over, knock the empty bag above the crop / or place it between the crops to also benefit from the predatory mites left behind in the bag.
