Ultim-Mite Swirski, from Dutch group Kopper Biological Systems, is a small bag made from 100 per cent compostable film developed for the biological control of thrips or white flies on a wide variety of crops.

The product contains a breeding medium for the predatory mites Amblyseius swirskii.

Due to the use of thin foil, the bag is well protected from the weather and can thus be also used outdoors.

The film acts as a barrier against moisture or dehydration, significantly expanding its range of possible applications.

Ulti-Mite Swirski is available in boxes of 100 or 500 sachets.
