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.

My thrips are gone 4 days After application. Predators are the way to go 💪
Half of my bugs were dead the next day when I went to apply them.
I'm sorry to hear about your experience with our product. We always guarantee live delivery if the product was damaged or there were viability issues during transit. Since we have no control over the environment Orius was stored and released in, we can't take responsibility for its survival or efficacy. Any amount of storage can be stressful for the predator due to lack of humidity, water, and food. Please reach out to us if you'd like to learn more.
Orius cleared out the thrips in a few days. They did a great job.
