Amblyseius cucumeris: mobile predatory mite for control of thrips

What is Amblyseius cucumeris?
  • Predatory mite for control of thrips larvae
  • Conspicuous on account of its high mobility
  • Sometimes feeds on spider mites or other pest mites
  • Also feeds on pollen
In which crops is Amblyseius cucumeris effective
  • Preventative treatment in pollen-bearing crops such as pepper and eggplant
  • Also applicable in ornamental crops such as gerbera, rose and a wide range of potted plants


      ABS-System, which contains the predatory mite Amblyseius cucumeris, also contains the prey mite (Tyrophagus putrescentiae) as a food source. Under certain circumstances such as young or weak plants, dark and humid climate conditions, and in combination with using large quantities of breeding sachets, the prey mite (T. putrescentiae) population can increase to the point of causing damages in cucumbers. The use of these products in cucumbers is under the grower’s own responsibility.
