The courier fee is included in the price.

Please note that this product should be ordered on its own for delivery. 

We are unable to deliver any other products together with it.


The combo is best for curative application when red spider mites are already active in your roses. Specially for plants grown in pots. Please note that if you have red spider mite activity, you are most probably not applying enough water to your roses’ roots.

Spical is the tougher surviving mite and is best applied preventatively early in the season.

Spidex hunts the red spider mites but does not survive well once the red spider mite colonies have been decimated.

Spical

Predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus

Use Spical for:

  • two spotted spider mite
  • fruit tree red spider mite (also European red mite)
  • citrus red mite
  • broad mite
  • cyclamen mite

Packaging:

500 ml bottle, containing 25,000 predatory mites
Each bottle contains predatory mites (all mobile stages) mixed with inert carrier material

When to use Spical?

Use Spical for biological pest control of:

  • two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae)
  • fruit tree red spider mite, also known as European red mite (Panonychus ulmi)
  • citrus red mite (Panonychus citri)
  • broad mite (Polyphagotarsonemus latus)
  • cyclamen mite (Tarsonemus pallidus)

Introduce Spical if pest presence is suspected or at the first sign of pest presence. Use Spidex for hotspot treatment.

Precaution: application of this product can cause sensitization or allergic reactions, we therefore advise to take the necessary precautions.

How does Spical work?

Adult predatory mites, nymphs and larvae actively search for their prey and consume them.

Application Spical

  • Turn and shake the bottle gently before use
  • Sprinkle material on leaves. It is almost like shaking salt onto food, except one tries to spread the carrier material and mites evenly onto your roses.
  • Neoseiulus californicus tolerates a range of chemical pesticides
  • Always use Spical in conjunction with Spidex

Handling

Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt. Failure to do so can have a negative impact on their quality. In case you do need to store Spical, please follow the instructions below. Koppert B.V. is not liable for any loss of quality if the product is stored for longer and/or under different conditions than recommended.

  • Storage after receipt: 1-2 days
  • Storage temperature: 8-10°C/47-50°F

Spidex

Predatory mites Phytoseiulus persimilis

Use Spidex for:

  • Two spotted spider mite

Packaging:

  • 100 ml bottle with dosage-plug, containing 2,000 adults
  • Each bottle contains adults mixed with wood-chips

When to use Spidex?

Use Spidex for biological pest control of two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae). Spidex works well on all the life cycle stages of the two-spotted spider mite but prefers younger stages most. Use Spidex preventatively and at the first sign of pest presence.

How does Spidex work?

Phytoseiulus persimilis feeds on all stages of spider mites, but has a preference for eggs. The predatory mites pierce the eggs and consume the contents. Adult Phytoseiulus persimilis also attack adult spider mites but the smaller development stages only feed on smaller prey stages. The larvae do not eat. The predatory mite can only survive on two spotted spider mites (Tetranychus spp.).

Application Spidex

  • Turn and shake the bottle gently before use
  • Sprinkle material on leaves. It is almost like shaking salt onto food, except one tries to spread the carrier material and mites evenly onto your roses.

Best working conditions Spidex

Relative humidity should be above 75% and the temperature above 20°C for at least some hours of the day. Phytoseiulus persimilis does not enter diapause.
