Amblyseius swirskii (aka Typhlodromips swirskii) is commonly referred to as “swirski”
swirskii feeds on thrips, whiteflies (greenhouse whitefly and Bemisia). It is known to perform better when fed a mixed diet of both whitefly and thrips2. It also feeds on pollen and can establish on crops in the absence of pests if there is a pollen source available.
It is recommended to place near center of plant/basket. Do not hang adjacent to heating pipes.
Slow-release sachets should be hung on plants out of the direct sun, to prevent high temperatures from killing the mites inside. When possible, sachets should also be hung well within the plant canopy to provide a more humid environment (low humidity reduces the number of mites that emerge from the sachets). Sachets should not be in direct contact with water, however, some packaging is water resistant. Again follow instructions carefully. Sachets will continue to produce predatory mites for 5-6 weeks.
