Spidex Boost offers a direct application solution for growers and is not a breeding sachet in which further generations emerge over time. Spidex Boost mites get on with their work as soon as the sachet is opened. Initially developed for use in Cannabis, the product has proved to be so effective that it is now applied in many other crops, such as tomato. In open crops or crops with small leaves where care needs to be taken to keep the carrier material off the plant, Spidex Boost is an ideal solution.
• Use Spidex Boost at the first sign of pest presence.
• Hang the sachet in the center of the pest hotspot.
• Make a small incision in the sachet so that the predatory mites can emerge.
• Use in combination with Spical Ultimite for an optimal effect in controlling spider mites.
Spidex Boost is delivered in a box of 250 sachets. Each sachet contains 100 predatory mites. For more information and method of application see our ‘how-to-use’ video: www.koppertus.com/spidex-boost/
Instructions for application:
IMPORTANT! Ensure that you create a sufficient exit opening for the mites prior to placing sachets in the crop (a small hole or scissor-snip can be made in the upper corner portion of the sachet).
Hang sachets in sheltered positions in the crop (minimize exposure to direct sunlight or high winds/fans). Introduce sachets as soon as possible after receipt.
Handle sachets by the cardboard strip at the top; predatory mites are easily damaged.
