The information given below is merely indicative. Tailored advice can be provided if information is available on the local factors that need to be taken into account, such as the crop, the climate conditions and the level of infestation. For the correct approach, please consult a Shale Peak Horticulture specialist.
Use one to two sachets per m2 (10 sq ft).
Hang sachets on the crop (sachets already have an exit hole)

For best results place sachets so that the bottom is touching the moist substrate. This will increase the longevity of the product.
Hold sachets by the cardboard strip at the top. The predatory mites are easily damaged
Please note Thripex Plus contains grain mites and bran. These mites might cause slight damage to some crops, especially with a large number of mites and high humidity. Therefore, consult your supplier prior to using Thripex. It is recommended to carry out a small field test to monitor the effects.
