How it works
Mode of action
Nymphs and adult predatory bugs actively search for their prey and suck them out. The skin is left behind in its original form.
Macrolophus pygmaeus sucks out the body contents of its prey leaving only the empty skin.
|100 ml bottle.
|Wood chips and buckwheat hulls.
Directions for use
- Sprinkle material directly in the hotspots on leaves or in Diboxes
- Spread material thinly (maximum 1 cm thick) to enable the predatory bugs to get out of the carrier material
- Make sure the material is not disturbed for at least a few hours after application
The dosage of Mirical-N depends on climate, crop and pest density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Use for control of hotspots. Introduction rates typically range from 10-50 per m2/release. Releases should be repeated al least two times. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
Optimal temperatures for Mirical are above 20°C/68°F, lower temperatures slow down the development of Macrolophus pygmaeus significantly.
For effective control of spider mite use Mirical-N in combination with Spidex.
