Predatory miteStratiolaelaps scimitus

Use Entomite-M for:

Eggs, larvae and pupae of sciarid flies and thrips pupae

Mode of action

The predatory mites feed on larvae of sciarid flies, thrips pupae and other soil-dwelling insects. The mites appear in and on the soil and at the base of plant stems. The reduction of the infestation level occurs at a slow but steady rate.


  • Turn and shake the cardboard cylinder gently before use
  • Spread material evenly on soil or planting medium (not on the plastic)


The dosage of Entomite-M depends on climate, crop, planting medium and pest density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start introduction preventively or as soon as the first pests are detected in the crop. Introduction rates typically range from 100-500 per m2/release. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.

Environmental conditions

For optimal results the soil has to be moist, rich in organic matter and have a loose structure. The minimum temperature for successful use of Entomite-M is 15°C/59°F.

Combined use

For thrips control Entomite-M should be combined with generalist predatory mites (Amblydromalus limonicus, Amblyseius andersoni, Amblyseius swirskii, Neoseiulus cucumeris) and/or Orius spp..
