Tips & Tricks
- If extra pollen is added to establish orius, be aware that the western flower thrips also eat pollen. Thrips should always be monitored to ensure they are not benefiting from this practice.
- Orius is attracted to yellow sticky traps, if they are being used in your crops, we suggest placing 1 for every 100 plants or more.
- Orius is a diapausing insect and will become inactive during shorter/cooler days. We don’t recommend using it in the winter unless additional lighting is provided.

I was a bit concerned about the viability of these little guys with the weather getting colder, but they came well insulated and were super lively upon arrival! Next day delivery was great as well. Released them all today & fingers crossed they wipe out my plant pests.
Arrived a day after placing the order and seemed in great health. Way more active and lively compared to orius I've received from other providers.
They arrived in great shape and all scattered into the plants the second I dropped them from the bottle. So excited to see how they do over the next few weeks
arrived in good condition can't see any further activity after a few days
It gave me heebie jeebies to knowingly have live bugs in the apartment but let's hope they're thrip hungry!
They shipped quickly and arrived in good condition. They were active and *hopefully* hungry on arrival!
