Directions for use
- Shake bottle gently before use
- Spread material on clean rock wool slabs, leaves and/or in application boxes (Dibox)
- Apply in groups of 75-100 insects in order to establish a population and encourage mating
- Make sure the material remains undisturbed at the introduction site for a few hours after application
The dosage of Thripor-L depends on climate, crop and thrips density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start introduction as soon as the first thrips are detected in the crop. Introduction rates typically range from 0.5-10 per m2/release. Releases should be repeated once or twice. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
Optimal temperatures for Thripor-L are above 20°C (68°F), lower temperatures slow down the development of Orius laevigatus significantly. Effectivity is reduced at temperatures above 30°C (86°F).
Should be combined with generalist predatory mites.
