When should I use Koppert's Entomite-M?
Use Entomite-M for biological control of eggs, larvae and pupae of flies and thrips. It is best to introduce the product at the first sign of pests.
How does Entomite-M remove fungus gnats?
Entomite contains a beneficial and predatory mite called Stratiolaelaps scimitus. They feed on larvae of flies and other soil based insects. Stratiolaelaps scimitus rarely transfers on to the plant itself - they stay in the soil and control soil-based pests. The reduction of the infestation level occurs at a slow but steady rate.
