Two-Spotted Mite Control is simple, cheap and effective with Bug Central. Predatory mites (‘Persimilis’) have been commercially reared and used in Integrated Pest Management programs for more than 15 years. Persimilis are small, fast moving predatory mites that feed voraciously on two spotted mites. Two spotted mites are sometimes referred to as red spider mites.

Persimilis prefer warm, slightly humid conditions, and are therefore very good in green houses or similar enclosed environments. They are also very effective in small crops, such as vegetable gardens or small ornamental plants. For tree crops in hot environments, another predatory mite may be more suitable. Please email us if you require clarification of the best option.

Persimilis normally only require a single release, with numbers slowly building over 4 to 6 weeks. 

The Product consists of 5000 Persimilis, which are despatched in plastic bottles containing vermiculite as a carrier for the mites.
