Tips & Tricks
- If extra pollen is added in crops to establish orius, be aware that the western flower thrips also eat pollen. Thus flower thrips should 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 becomes inactive during shorter cooler days, thus we don’t recommend using it during winter unless additional lighting is being used.

I ordered orius to take care of a recurring thrips problem I have in my house. I had ordered from another company before discovering growliv and had Poor successt with receiving healthy orius. I was told it was because they were shipped from overseas and they could not withstand that stress well. I was glad to hear these orius are bred here in Canada and shipped overnight so they would have a much higher chance of surviving. So far so good. Definitely the most lively ones I have gotten so far. Thanks Growliv!
What awesome bugs. My orchid collection of 1000+ was plaqued with thrips. One release of these and they all mysteriously vanished. Perhaps rate by our friends! Would definitely continue purchasing for yearly releases or as needed. Bugs looked extra zesty and arrived fast.
Awesome help! My advice reach out and ask questions GrowLiv will deliver!
