  • Limonica
    Limonica is the name of the product that contains the predatory mite Amblydromalus limonicus. This predatory mite is used for the biocontrol of various species of thrips and whitefly....

  • Use Limonica for biological pest control of the larvae of various species of thrips (first and second larval stages) and the eggs and larvae of greenhouse and cotton whitefly (all larval stages). Introduce Limonica at the first signs of pest's presence. These predatory mites have a voracious appetite and have the ability to help growers with pest control instead of using chemicals. 
  • Entonem
    Entonem is the product that contains the entomopathogenic nematodes, Steinernema feltiae. Limonica is used for bicontrol of different stages of fungus gnats, black vine weevil, and thrips.

  • The beneficial nematodes Stenernema feltiae are used for the biological control of the larvae of fungus gnats, black vine weevil, and the pupae of thrips in soil applications. In leaf applications these nematodes work to control the larvae of thrips. In recent years the the gel formula that the nematodes are packaged in was reformulated to expand the life span of the product while still maintaining the highest quality. After application, the nematodes actively seek out their prey and penetrate them. The nematodes feed on the contents of their host, excreting specific bacteria from their digestive tracts as they do so. The larvae die within a few days.
