FROM THIS EPISODE


Good bugs from Nature's Good Guys!

Predatory good bugs are beneficial against various pests and is a great passive approach to pest management.


Not sure which specific predatory mite will work for you? Try the Special Blend, a mix of adult mites that target different pests and can handle various growing environments.


Prefer a slow release approach to releasing predatory mites? Two great generalist mites for pest control are:

1. Neoseiulus Calfornicus which can tolerate growing environments of 43-115F and 40-80% humidity.

2. Amblyseius Cucumeris which can tolerate growing environments of 43-90F and 65-75% humidity
