Amblyseius andersoni is a predatory mite native to North America. They feed on and control all stages of phytophagous mites with all mobile life stages of A. andersoni able to feed on prey. A. andersoni are an excellent choice for pre-emergent control of pest infestations because of their varied diet and ability to survive cooler temperatures.

  • Working temperature range: 42-100°F
  • Relative Humidity: Higher humidity needed for environments with higher temperatures.
  • Amblyseius andersoni hatch at temperatures between 68° and 77° F. In cooler temperatures they will enter diapause to survive. Studies have shown that A. andersoni have a 100% diapause incidence below 18°C (64.5°F) when it is light for 10 hours or less.
  • They are less than 1mm long and light brown in color.
  • Compatible with Phytoseiulus persimilis and Stethorus punctillum.
  • They will also feed on thrips, pollen and honeydew; however, they will not control a thrips infestation. Use A. cucumeris with A. andersoni
Sachets allow for controlled release over an extended period of time. They are water resistant and can be used with overhead irrigation. The mite predators breed inside the sachets and provide continued emergence over 4-6 weeks. For best results, apply as a preventative treatment of mite infestations in vegetable crops, strawberries, raspberries, and fruit trees. Replace sachets every four weeks.

General Release Rates -

  • Mini-Sachets/Sachets on Sticks: Place one sachet or stick per propagation tray or plant. Repeat releases every 4 weeks through the growing season.
  • Sachet Strips: Place strips within crop canopy along rows to reduce labor costs. Six strips per case.
  • Loose Media Bags/Bottles: Release at a rate of 1 mite predator per square foot. Repeat releases periodically throughout the growing season.
