Orius insidiosus

Nymphs of the minute pirate bug, Orius insidiosus devour thrips larvae and can easily consume 50 of them during their development. Adults eat all thrips stages, and female adults can kill up to 20 thrips larvae or 6 adults per day. Adults and nymphs can survive on pollen present in your crop (e.g. pepper, strawberries, raspberries, gerbera), and feeds on Nutrimac™ or Nutricards. Insidiosus often kills more thrips than needed for their own feeding.

  • In addition to thrips, orius also consumes aphids, red spider mites, whiteflies and moth eggs
