5P370M – Thrips Predator Amblyseius cucumeris These predatory mites are tan-orange in color and similar in looks and movement to the spider mite predator. The predator population must be built up and established early in the crop, even before evidence of thrips. These predators search the plants and feed on thrip nymphs and immature spidermites. Introduce at the rate of 1 predator per ft2, two weeks after transplanting. Repeat applications every month during periods of warm, dry weather. These predators provide a means of control in the foliage. If NO THRIPS are present, A. cucumeris can survive on pollen.
