Thrips control (Neoseiulus cucumeris)
Neoseiulus (amblyseius cucumeris)

How it works
Tiny (0.5mm) clear white adult female mites lay up to 35 eggs among thrips concentrations. Eggs hatch into super small larvae which develop into nymphal forms before reaching adulthood. The nymphal forms are fierce predators too, consuming large quantities of immature thrips.

General usage
Greenhouses and interiorscapes. May not work outdoors.
