Koppert Spical (Amblyseius californicus) is a unique product that's specially designed to effectively control spider mites. It contains Neoseiulus californicus (formerly known as Amblyseius californicus) which specifically targets fruit spider mite (Panonychus ulmi), two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae), begonia mite (Tarsonemus pallidus), citrus red mite (Panonynchus citri), and broad mite (Polyphagotarsonemuslatus), particularly during younger stages. It works when predatory mites, larvae, and nymphs hunt for their prey and suck them dry. It works best when combined with predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis (SPIDEX). It's very easy to use, simply spread it on leaves or it can also be scattered using AIRBUG mite blower for lower crops.
Koppert Spical is available in two sizes:
- The small bottle is 250 ml and contains 5,000 Predatory Mites (Neoseiulus californicus) mixed with enert material.
- The large bottle is 500 ml and contains 25,000 Predatory Mites (Neoseiulus californicus) mixed with enert material.
