Product description

Orius insidiosus originates from North America and is a standard corrective treatment for Thrips in glasshouse crops. The main target is Western Flower Thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis). It is often released as a follow up treatment after predatory mites such as Amblyseius cucumeris. The bugs are supplied in 250ml bottles containing 500 adults and late instar nymphs packed in a buckwheat & vermiculite carrier. A protein food source in the bottles ensures optimal condition of the bugs on delivery. Oriline is reared under the “ACTIV” system which gives fast establishment in crops.

General Information

Orius is a predatory bug that is often used in a programme with predatory mites in crops such as peppers where it will quickly establish when feeding on the target pest and pollen. The introduction of Amblyseius cucumeris A swirskii will control young thrips and the Orius will compliment this by predating on both the juveniles and the adult thrips.
