Oriline I (Orius insidiosus) PFP020514-002 2000/bottle

SKU #: 2600016

Oriline products contain the predatory bug Orius, which has a long history of providing effective and reliable thrips control in a range of protected crops. Orius serves as a standard preventive treatment for thrips, particularly Western Flower Thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis.

The Oriline product range consists of three products, each tailored to the country and the use required.

Key Features
>> Orius is the only biological control agent that kills adult thrips.
>> Can kill up to 80 adult thrips per day (while only feeding on a few).
>> Establishes well on pollen-rich crops.
>> Feeding Ephestia eggs (Bug Food E) will enhance the establishment of Orius due to increased fecundity.
>> All five Orius nymph stages are also predatory and adults can fly.
>> Considered a generalist predator it will also feed on mites, moth eggs and other pests.
>> Takes 4 to 8 weeks to establish a population.
Main uses
>> Western Flower thrips
>> Onion thrips
>> Other thrips spp
>> Moth eggs
>> TSSM (Two Spotted Spider Mite)

How It Works
>> All mobile stages are voracious predators of Western Flower thrips and will attack any developmental stage including adults.
>> Often used in a program with predatory mites in crops such as peppers, where it will quickly establish when feeding on the target pest as well as pollen.
>> Introducing Amblyseius cucumeris or swirskii will control young thrips, and the Orius will complement this by preying on both juvenile and adult thrips.
