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.

Great I think..

To get rid of thrips on houseplants. I have over 300 houseplants and I have animals and small children so I keep my plants free of chemicals. When I have a thrips outbreak I use these and then I use swirski. I don’t use them together! I use one for a few weeks and then the other for a few weeks and rotate until I don’t see anymore adult thrips. These eat the adults and the swirski eat the babies. So once I no longer see adults I continue using swirski as prevention. The only downside to these bugs is that they fly around the house - they don’t tend to stay in place! So after dumping them on my plants - the next day I can’t see them anywhere so I can’t say for sure that they “do their job” I also squish the adult thrips when I see them! The swirski really stay on the plants and you can see them doing their work..


My little bugs worked great and were delivered super quickly!

It works!

Used to combat thrips and worked. Brought their number way down. Going to purchase another treatment!

I purchased orius, swirski, and growliv. They shipped out and arrived super quickly. Unfortunately I was at work so they sat in my house a few hours prior to use but they were incredibly active. 7 days later and I'm still seeing some Orius at work. So far so good...
