Got Spider Mites? New Solution Is on the Way for Citrus and Grape Growers

Koppert Biological Systems announces Spical Ulti-Mite will soon be available in a high-tech foil sachet for spider mite control. This sachet is created using a newly patented packaging concept that ensures consistent performance in variable climatic conditions, including outdoor crops.


Spical Ulti-Mite will be available for use in citrus and grape production.

Koppert says extensive research in the development process has resulted in a sachet that creates a better environment for the predatory mite to build up its population. The quality of the foil ensures the breeding system is better protected against environmental conditions that might affect the mites emerging from it. The sachet is narrower and slightly longer and gives the mites the very best conditions to develop even more swiftly and strongly.

The new Spical Ulti-Mite sachets can be disposed of together with the crop waste. The sachet is made of a newly-developed foil that conforms to the required industrial compostable standards. In addition, Koppert has reinforced the hook from which it can be attached to make it even more robust.
