Step-by-Step Guide to Using Spical Ulti-Mite and Swirskii Ulti-Mite
Understanding Your Product

Spical Ulti-Mite (Neoseiulus californicus) is designed for controlling spider mites. It is available in breeding sachets that allow the mites to multiply and disperse over several weeks, providing continuous protection against these pests in your crops or indoor plants.

Swirski Ulti-Mite (Amblyseius swirskii) targets a broader range of pests, including thrips and whiteflies. Like Spical Ulti-Mite, it comes in breeding sachets that release predatory mites gradually to effectively manage pest populations without the need for chemical pesticides.


Placement of Sachets

Hang the sachets in sheltered locations within your plant to avoid direct exposure to sunlight, which can harm the mites.

Ensure that sachets are positioned in areas where they can effectively release mites into the crop.


Handling Sachets

Each sachet is equipped with an exit hole for the mites.

When placing sachets, hold them by the cardboard strip at the top to avoid any damage to the mites inside.


Dosage and Application

Use one sachet per plant to ensure adequate coverage and effectiveness.

Place the sachet securely in the plant pot, ideally attaching it to a plant stake or tucking it into the foliage where it remains shaded and away from direct sunlight.

Ensure the exit hole in the sachet is free of obstructions so the mites can easily disperse onto the plant to begin their work.

Begin introduction preventively, or as soon as the first signs of spider mites appear.

Timing and Repetition

Monitor the effectiveness of the mites. If the pest problem persists, consider a second release after 4 weeks to maintain control.


Additional Tips

Regularly check the condition of the sachets and the activity of the mites.

Keep records of placement and replacement of sachets to track coverage and effectiveness.


By following these guidelines, you can maximise the benefits of using Spical Ulti-Mite and Swirskii Ulti-Mite in your integrated pest management strategy, helping to keep your crops healthy and pest-free in a sustainable way.
