Control Spider Mites

Spider mite on plants is a pest that occurs in many crops. The most common spider mite in horticulture is the greenhouse spider mite Tetranychus urticae. Spider mites on plants are difficult to control because they reproduce quickly and in large numbers, causing the insect to do a lot of damage in a short period of time. Royal Brinkman offers a wide range of organic crop protection products for spider mite control.

Biological control of spider mites 

Spider mites can be controlled biologically with the use of beneficial insects, including the predatory mite Phyotseiulus and the gall midge Feltielle acarisuga. Natural enemies are an important part of the biological control of pests in professional horticulture. With the use of biological crop protection, you can control spider mites and keep expansion under control, which means that chemicals are no longer necessary. In this way the use of beneficial insects contributes to integrated crop protection. Would you like to know more about how to recognise and control spider mites? Our specialists wrote an article about the spider mite. 

Biological control of spider mites with the predatory mite 

The biological control of spider mite can be done with the use of predatory mite Phytoseiulus. The predatory mite Phytoseiulus has been successfully used for a long time in many crops for biological control of spider mite. PhytoCONTROL from AgroBio contains vermiculite as a carrier, this has the advantage that little residue remains on the leaf. PhytoCONTROL is available in various sizes and packaging at royalbrinkman.com. If you want to control spider mite biologically, it is important that the predatory mite is planted in the vicinity of the affected plants. By quickly reproducing spider mite, it is important to also treat plants for which you do not see any infestation yet. You are able to see the Phytoseiulus persimilis in the video. 

Biological control of spider mites with the gall midge 

In addition, the gall midge Feltiella can also be used for biological control of spider mites. This adult Feltiella acarisuga gall midge will not eat spider mites, but the larvae they will. The adult Feltiella females fly through the greenhouse and deposit their eggs in spider mite hot spots. The larvae of the gall midge will eat the spider mite eggs after hatching. Partly thanks to the good search ability of the female gall midges, spider mites are quickly found. Besides the good search ability and the fact that they can fly, gall midges are an excellent beneficial insect to control for spider mites.
