SWIRScontrol (loose) to control white fly and thrips.     

Amblyseius swirskii 
SWIRScontrol contains the predatory mite Amblyseius swirskii from the family of the Phytoseiidae. This cream-colored predatory mite prefers the not mobile stages of the whitefly, thrips larvae and spider mites. Besides thrips and whitefly this mite can also develop on pollen and plant foods such as vegetable saps and will therefore easily settle in the greenhouse. Swirskii originates from the Mediterranean area, which explains its proper functionig in hot and humid climates.

The appearance of the A. swirskii is barely distinguishable with the naked eye of the A. cucumeris or A. californicus. The predatory mite has no diapause, but in most regular crops it is not active enough during winter. The optimum growth temperature is between 25 °C and 28 °C, and the predatory mite remains active up to temperatures of 40°C. Under these conditions, its total life cycle is around five to six days. The females lay around 2 eggs a day. Under the15°C its reproduction strongly decreases. Temperature and light are important for the development of this predatory mite. A. Swirski is especially well usable from March to September.

SWIRScontrol needs to be used at an early stage of the pest development. The predatory mite can be used in a lot of different crops where there are thrips and white fly. You will find A. swirskii mostly in the top of the plant, where the pests are.
