New greenhouse predatory mite coming soon

Update from Vineland Research and Innovation Centre

Vineland has discovered a new general predator to help control pests associated with increased crop diversity in Canadian greenhouses, thanks to a five-year project funded in part by the Government of Canada under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership’s Agri-Science Program, in collaboration with the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and the biocontrol producer Applied Bio-nomics Ltd.

According to Rose Buitenhuis, Vineland’s Senior Research Scientist, Biological Control, the new predator Anystis is effective against several key greenhouse pests by controlling thrips and spider mites and suppressing aphis.
