AMBLYCAcontrol  [125.000/bag] to control spider mites

Neoseiulus californicus
N. californicus is a predatory mite that can be used against all stages of different species of spider mites. This predatory mite can also survive on a diet of pollen or other mites, or even for some time without food. Neoseiulus californicus is very effective in combination with Phytoseiulus persimilis.
Neoseiulus californicus predatory mites have a light brown to pink color. The predatory mite is an active viewfinder and is well visible in the crop. The eggs are small (over 0.1 mm) and have a light brown/cream colour. An adult predatory mite lives about 20 days, of which it lays eggs for 14 days, an average of 3 eggs a day. The whole life cycle can last only 4 days at high temperatures. Neoseiulus californicus has five stages of development: egg, larva, first and second nymph stages and adult predatory mite. The larvae have six legs, the nymphs and adult mites have eight legs. From the first nymph stage they are predatory. Predatory mites prick the prey and suck it empty. Per day an adult N. californicus predatory mite can eat about 5 adult spider mites with possibly some larvae and eggs.
Compared to Phytoseiulus persimilis, Neoseiulus californicus is less sensitive to chemical pesticides.  N. californicus should be used in an early stage of pest development. The predatory mite can be used in many different crops where spider mites occur.

Instructions 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. Keep the product out of direct sunlight. Mix the product well before use. This will ensure a good distribution of mites in the material and in your crop (so keep mixing the material during application). Shake out the material in small quantities over your crop. Avoid contact with heating pipes. The degree of application always depends on the pest pressure in the crop, so ask the product specialist for the correct dosage.

Storage and transport

If storage is required, the product should be stored in a dark place in a ventilated room at a temperature of 15-18°C and a relative humidity of 75-80% for a maximum of 24 hours.
