BioPersimilis by BioBee
Phytoseiulus persimilis is a predatory mite originated in South America. It is a natural and efficient predator used to control spider mites. The adult female is reddish orange in color, pear shaped, and longer than its prey. Its special feature is long front legs which help in moving faster, especially when exposed to strong light or when its normal activity is interrupted.
At 70°F-80°F (21°C-27°C) the persimilis completes its lifecycle from egg to adult in a week. It develops twice as fast as its prey and is considered an outstanding efficient natural predator. It is able to suppress mite infestation quickly and thoroughly.

Application and Handling
Before release, the bottle should be gently shaken to mix the mites evenly with the vermiculite. The mites are released by gently tapping the opened containers over the plants while walking between the rows of the crops in the growing area.
