How to Control Aphid Preventatively
January 4th, 2012
Why our Aphidoletes are difference from the rest?
When not cold stored, Aphidoletes has a tremendous searching ability, capable of finding individual Aphids within the crop. Cycling both indoors and outdoors readily occurs if enough Aphids are present. Aphidoletes overwinter by diapauses, triggered by short days. Thus weekly release keeps our crop clean.

What plants have the most spider mite problems?
Two-spotted spider mites are developing, in hot, dry areas of your home or greenhouses. Two-spotted spider mites have a wide host range and can feed on literally hundreds of plants. To spot spider mites, look on the underside of the oldest leaves along the midveins, for the mobile mites, their eggs and white empty eggshells. You may see faint stippling, or chlorotic growth that resembles a nitrogen deficiency. A common mistake is to assume the plants need additional feeding, which then encourages the development of the spider mites. During outbreaks, webbing can be seen or leaves may become bronzed. Often infestations begin on a few isolated plants
