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.
Due to the COVID-19 impact, we are only shipping from Monday-Wednesday via Priority Overnight. Order processing can take up to 48 hours.
Great service and product. Orius are on the hunt!
Even with Purolator leaving them on my doorstep for an unknown amount of time in the freezing cold, the bugs were alive and thriving! Very satisfied.
Product shipped fast and arrived next day. The orius were alive and fully awake and ready to hunt ! Highly recommended.
Arrived fast and insulated with heat pack. Bugs were active and in great health when I opened them. Will order again!
I’m not happy, 7 days to received ,and all were dead when they arrived ....
Hi Steve, I'm sorry to hear that your bugs didn't arrive healthy and happy. We guarantee live delivery and always refund or replace items if they arrive in poor condition. Please shoot us an email next time you have an issue.
Our shipping policies state we don't ship on Thursday or Friday due to the long delay it can cause if it gets held over the weekend. Your order was received on Wednesday but it was past noon. We try our best to get late orders shipped if possible but we can't guarantee anything once its past our cut-off time.
