Product Description & Reviews
Cucumeris is a species of predatory mite that prefers to feed on immature stages of thrips but sometimes attack spider mites. The tiny 0.5mm. clear-white adult female mites lay eggs amongst pest concentrations. They can lay up to 35 eggs. The eggs hatch into super small larvae which develop into nymphal forms before reaching adulthood. These, too, are fierce predators, consuming many immature pests. The life-span of these predators is about 10 days in their immature stages, then around 30 days as adults. The conditions for optimum performance will be between 66-80°F with a relative humidity of between 65-72%. But these are optimum conditions, and not necessarily a prerequisite of successful implementation. Please note, however, considerably cooler temperatures will hamper reproduction and development a certain degree. Cucumeris only feed on immature thrips, not adults.
