General information


When to use Entomite-M?

Use Entomite-M for biological control of eggs, larvae and pupae of Sciarid flies; especially smaller larvae. Introduce the product at the first sign of pest presence.

How does Entomite-M work?

Adults and nymphs feed on larvae of Sciarid flies and other soil based insects. The mites appear in the soil, on the soil and at the base of the plant's stems. Stratiolaelaps scimitus rarely transfers on to the plant itself. The reduction of the infestation level occurs at a slow but steady rate.
