Thrips/Whitefly Predators (Amblyseius Swirskii)
The use of predators to tackle pests is common in the gardening and hydroponic worlds. This is a completely natural way to deal with infestations in your plants and a technique that is employed by individuals growing all sorts of plants.
If you're dealing with regular outbreaks or Whitefly, the Amblyseius Swirskii could come in useful. The Amblyseius Swirskii is a predatory mite that can significantly reduce their numbers around your plant, as well as feeding on their larvae and eggs, consequently reducing future outbreaks too. This predatory mite is also known to occasionally feed on Thrips and Spidermite, so you may be able to use it to tackle these types of infestation too!
What's more? The Amblyseius Swirskii doesn't require pests to survive. Once it has eliminated your plant of pests, it can survive and sustain itself by feeding on small amounts of pollen. It can consequently be left on your plant as a preventative measure to reduce infestations of pests in the future. As the old saying goes, prevention is always better than cure. Leaving the Amblyseius Swirskii on your plants won't cause them any damage and will prevent any future occurrences of Whitefly going forward!
