Target Pests

  • Fungus Gnat Larvae
  • Soil stages of Thrips
  • Sciarid Flies
  • Shore Flies
  • Root Aphids
  • Springtails
  • Root Mealybugs
  • Bulb Mites
  • Poultry Mites

 

Ideal Environment

  • 15-30°C with over 60% humidity
  • Since its a soil-dweller these conditions are relative to the soil rather than atmospheric conditions.
  • Colder temperatures can hinder the predators’ ability to reproduce.

 

Tips & Tricks

  • Hypoaspis is also an excellent option for preventative measures since it can survive on many other pests if thrips or fungus gnats are not available.
  • It has a relatively long life, living on average up to 60-75 days while consuming 1-4 pests a day.
  • Hypoaspis does not diapause and can be used year-round.

    Works really well!

    Controls fungus gnats well if used in combination with yellow sticky traps inserted into the soil -- need both to control both the larvae and the adults. Would purchase again!

    Arrived in good condition, the mites were quite lively. Applied them to my approx 40 indoor plants about 3 weeks ago and seems to have worked well. Haven’t seen any fungus gnats in the last week or two. These have worked far better than anything else I’ve tried for gnats.
