BioAndersoni (Amblyseius andersoni) is a predatory mite that feeds on small arthropod prey and pollen. BioAndersoni is less than 1mm in length and is often used in tomatoes due to its ability to maneuver between trichomes. They are active across a wide temperature range, allowing for early season introduction into crops yet might enter diapause with cooler temperatures and short day lengths (<10 hr.).
Since A. andersoni is able to feed on pollen, it can be applied before the pests’ arrival.
Consult with your local BioBee for product availability in your country.
BioAndersoni is packaged in a bottle containing 50,000 predatory mites.
Also available in bags containing 125,000 predatory mites
BioAndersoni Sachets are available in boxes with 250 sachets (62,500 predatory mites).
Dosage can vary depending on the crop and the level of infestation.
- BioAndersoni is shipped in insulated, chilled boxes. Packaging must be kept intact until placed in the field.
- Keep in a cool location 16°C until release.
- The predatory mites should be released within 24 hours of receipt.
- Remove the product containers from the box, one at a time.
- Before use turn, roll the bottle back and forth gently, to mix BioAndersoni with the vermiculite.
- The predators are released by sprinkling the contents of the bottle on the leaves of the host plants, preferably in a shady area.
- Do not expose the bottles to direct sunlight.
- Hang directly into a well-formed axillary meristem at medium height or where flowering is present.
Before combining BioAndersoni with any chemical pesticide in the crop, please consult your BioBee technical field representative.
