BioPersi+ (Phytoseiulus persimilis) is a predatory mite, proven outstanding, aggressive and highly effective against spider mites. The adult female is a distinctive reddish-orange color (when feeding on spider mites) with a pear-shaped body. Its long front legs allow it to move quickly and easily navigate spider mite webs.
BioPersi+ is produced using a new alternative food system, a true revolution in the mass rearing of Phytoseiulus persimilis.
This innovative product contains predators which are initially pale white, but change to the typical reddish-orange once they start feeding on spider mites in the crop. The white to red color change confirms active predation and is a useful visual indicator. BioPersi+ has a higher fecundity than the traditional BioPersimilis: females lay over 19 eggs within 5 days, under favorable conditions. BioPersi+ displays better searching ability and control of spider mite hot spots.

- Application of the mites should be during the early morning or late afternoon while the temperature is relatively mild.
- The product is supplied in cooled insulated boxes. It should be transported to the cultivated area (fields, greenhouses or net houses) in the same boxes.
- The individual bottles should be removed from the insulated box, one at a time.
- Before releasing, the bottle should be gently rotated to mix evenly, the mites and the vermiculite.
- The mites are released by gently tapping the opened bottle over the plants while walking between the rows of the crops.
The amount to be released is determined by the type of crop, field conditions, level of infestation and damage present in the crops.
Before combining BioPersi+ with any chemical pesticide in the crop, please consult your BioBee technical field representative.
