New species of predatory mite.
Amblyseius (Typhlodromips) montdorensis is a newly available species of predatory mite, which was first discovered in Australia. It is a generalist feeder, which will eat Whiteflies, Thrips, Rust mites and Broad mites. Extensive trials by Syngenta Bioline have demonstrated effective controls in several crops including gerbera, cucumbers, peppers, aubergines and roses. Montyline am is also being trialled in other crops such as tomatoes and fruit.
Montyline am (Amblyseius (Typhlodromips) montdorensis) is available as a formulation that is unique to Syngenta Bioline. It will be sold in Mini sachets for use in cucumbers. The mini sachet system gives more release points per crop. It is also available in Gemini sachets, as Bugline montdorensis and as loose material in cardboard tubes and bulk bags.
Montlyline am can breed at a greater range of temperatures and humidity levels than some existing predators. It will also eat first and second stage larval stages of thrips.
