Cucumeris is an economical predator that works well for preventative control of thrips, especially western flower thrips (WFT). It prefers immature stages of thrips and can kill on average 30 young thrip larvae in its lifetime.
For best results, use cucumeris in spring and early summer when temperatures are cooler and swirskii in late summer for thrip prevention.
Orders are only shipped Monday through Wednesday. Any orders placed past 10am on Wednesday through Sunday will be shipped the following Monday.
I've ordered these a few times and normally have great success with them. Immediately after hanging the sachets, within a few hours I would see mites crawling everywhere over the plant, but the last 2 times I have ordered I have not seen this. It feels like there are significantly less mites in here than there were previously, for whatever reason. Most of my plants had 2 sachets each and I still cannot really see any mites but lots of immature thrips. I'd probably recommend going for the bulk mites for better success. Unfortunately I'll probably have to order something again, as this order did not seem to work out well, despite the large volume ordered.
Our user team are vey happy to receive the shipping within 24 hours of ordering.
These sachets are packed full with bugs! You can literally see the package moving around if you open one up. Extremely satisfied with the product and the very quick shipping. Well packaged. Will be ordering more as needed and looking forward to no more thrips. Being pregnant, I cannot use pesticides, so this is perfect!!
Congratulations on your pregnancy, we're glad we could provide a pesticide-free solution for you!
