Predatory Mites From Biobest Now Available in Eco-Friendly Packaging

Biobest-Amblyseius-system-new-bagBiobest recently redesigned the packaging for its Biobest bulk Amblyseius system, replacing plastic buckets with specially designed eco-friendly paper bags.

Amblyseius cucumeris is a predatory mite widely used to control thrips larvae and spider mites. Highly mobile, this predatory mite can survive on pollen in the absence of prey. With the bulk Amblyseius system, growers can make successful preventative introductions in pollen-bearing crops.

According to the company, the shift to paper bags was made to make its packaging more sustainable, while reducing reliance on plastic.

This latest development replaces the plastic 5L buckets, previously used for 125K, 250K, and 500K bulk Amblyseius systems. It delivers the same predatory efficacy.

Watch for further eco-friendly packaging developments for Biobest’s other mites, which will be rolled out in the near future.
