Experiences with

Amblyseius (predatory mites)

Amblyseius: Spider mites on greenhouse cucumbers

Ms S. had sixcucumbers in her greenhouse this year. She planted them, pre-grown in pots, at the end of April . By May she already had her first cucumbers. As every year, they developed well until they were affected by spider mites in June.

The affected leaves had yellow spots, caused by the sucking action of the pests, which later became larger, until finally the entire leaf dried out and turned brown.
In previous years, Ms S. had used beneficial organisms (green lacewings). This somewhat reduced the infestation but without completely eliminating it.
This year Ms S. treated the cucumbers with a mixture of Petroleum 30 C and Psorinum 200 C, which she applied to the plants every 4 to 5 days, watering and spraying a total of 3 applications. read on...
The spider mite infestation improved a little but then returned strongly again. At this stage the cucumber plants looked distinctly unwell.
At the beginning of August, she tried Amblyseius 6 X, which is a homeopathic preparation from Gamasina mites.
She removed the old affected leaves and watered the cucumbers 2x per week with 10 ml of remedy solution in 10 litres of water.
To her astonishment, the cucumbers developed new shoots, with healthy leaves and fruit, right through to the end of September – completely free of spider mites. In previous years the cucumber plants were finshed already in August. (Edda S., Schwaigern 2013)
