Beneficial Insectary producing 2 predatory mite species in California:

More mite production in US will help growers using bio control to manage pest programs

Beneficial Insectary is now producing both Amblyseius (=Neoseiulus) cucumeris and Stratiolaelaps scimitus (formerly Hypoaspis miles) at their state-of-the-art facility in California. Domestic production in the United States is now benefiting growers in North America by significantly reducing the transit time of perishable predatory mites between producer and grower.

Beneficial Insectary’s expanded US based production ensures the freshest product available is delivered quickly, and ordering lead times are much more flexible than those of offshore producers. Orders can often be shipped as quickly as the following day.

  • Amblyseius (=Neoseiulus) cucumeris called ‘Ambly-C’ is available as loose product in 50,000 count bottles and also in slow release sachets (bulk bag coming soon). Ambly-C mites target western flower thrips as well as other pest mite species.
  • Stratiolaelaps scimitus (formerly Hypoaspis miles) called ‘Stratio-S’ will come in bottles with a 25,000 mite count per bottle (bulk bag coming soon). Stratio-S mites are applied directly to the soil for control of fungus gnat larvae, western flower thrips pupae, and other soil dwelling pests.
