Swirskii Breeding-System

Swirskii Breeding-System


This gluttonous predatory mite plays an important role in biological crop protection. It feeds on a wide range of prey as well as pollen and is adaptable to high temperatures.

Amblyseius (Typhlodromips) swirskii needs a satisfactory food source for a fast growth of its population and prefers mainly young stages of whitefly and thrips. It consumes around 5-10 prey a day. A. swirskii also feeds on pollen and to a certain degree on spider mites and tarsonemid mites. It is suitable for cucumbers, aubergines, peppers and strawberries but not tomatoes.

The optimal development temperature is between 25 and 28C and the predatory mite stays active even up to temperatures of 40C; it needs a minimum temperature of 15C.
