Phytoseiulus persimilis – Aggressive Spider Mite Predator

$52.00$92.00

Use persimilis  for aggressive, instant attack on a spider mite infestation. These little guys only feed on spider mites and their eggs. As long as there is food – they will find it and destroy it. When the spider mites are gone the persimilis will die off.

General Introduction Rates: 5 persimilis per 10 ft2 (m2) or 20 persimilis per infested leaf, weekly, as needed. Apply predators to each infested plant. These come in a bottle with corn grit (so they can live until you get them). Depending on the severity of the infestation, simply sprinkle the same amount on each plant and watch closely. This is a numbers game – you want to overwhelm the spider mites with predators!

Spider Mite Attack!


What is a phytoseilus persimilis?

Phytoseiulus persimilis is a aggressive tiny spider mite predator used for spider mite control. These little guys are killers who must eat spider mites and their eggs to survive.  persimilis feed on most of the spider mite pest Tetranychus spp. They will seek out and kill the two-spotted mite T. urticae, the carmine red mite T. cinnabarinus, and the Pacific mite T. pacificus

What are the benefits of these predators?

Spider mite predators are fast, effective, all natural answer to any spider mite problem. Not only that, when they are done cleaning out your crop, they will die off leaving your plants bug free!

What are spider mite predators?

persimilis is about the size of the period on this sentence. They are usually orange-reddish and live for about 8 days as immature mites, then for as long as 5 weeks as adults. Females can lay up to 60 eggs – usually where the spider mites and their webbing are.  Their best conditions are temps between  60–90°F with a fairly high relative humidity.

Any drawbacks to phytoseilus persimilis to kill spider mite predators?

You have to have mites for them to eat or they will die. Be sure and get them on the plants as soon as you get them. Don’t worry as they will find all the food available! They do not do well in cooler temps.

Watching them work…

These guys are so small it is hard to see them. However if you find empty webs, or if you see something orange with long legs running quickly around the underside of your plant’s leaves – it is probably a persimilis looking for a meal!
