|interior office plant infested with spider mite|
Indoor office plants can attract a whole host of annoying insect pests in your interior plant office environment.
Weekly visual checks by our staff and the application of insect parasites and insect predators can quickly eradicate these little pests. An example of a beneficial insect predator PDI applies to insect infested interior green office plants is p.permilis (red -orange) preying on a two spotted mite.
Two-spotted spider mites (Tetranychus urticae) and several other pest mites are the target food of P. persimilis ( orange below photo), which will consume 5-10 pest adults or up to 20 pest eggs/day.
