Red Spider Mite Control

Red spider mite control

Tetranychus Lambi, the red spider mite, is usually controlled very well by the ladybird predator Stethorus Spp.

However, there are situations that break this predator balance and monitoring the red spider mite pest is part of our agronomy field service. Soil moisture, weather conditions, insecticide use and fertiliser programs all impact the levels of red spider mite and Stethorus.

To combat red spider mite levels Total Grower Services have introduced predator havens into the field to provide nurseries for re-establishment of the ladybird beetles back into the plantation.
