Contains Persimilis (1,000 Mites) and Fallacis (500 Mites) for infestation treatment and future preventative care.

Persimilis is the main predator of spider mites and is the only one that will go directly into the webbing to eat them. They do best at a humidity of at least 60%, or you can help by misting your plants twice daily to keep the environment humid (pest spider mites love dry conditions). It may be necessary to reintroduce them after 7-10 days if you're dealing with a heavy infestation, or if conditions are sub-optimal.

Helpful Hint: One thing to be sure of before introducing persimilis (or any other type of beneficial bug) is that you have no pesticide residues on your plants.  

Fallacis are the best predator of spider mites if you seek to be preventative.  They can also be introduced at the same time as persimilis, and after the persimilis have done their work, the fallacis will stick around on your crop feeding on pollen as well as helping to subdue future outbreaks of pest mites on your plants.  They can even be introduced on "clean" plants.  Fallacis has a varied diet that includes bamboo mites, spruce spider mites on a wide variety of crops from field berries to container nurseries and greenhouse vegetables.
