Now I have ordered 10,000 hypoaspis from Defenders (and also some Ardap in case they don't wor). My question is, will the hypoaspis be affected by the Mite Off I've been spraying?
This is where a lot of people go wrong, if you have used a mite spray in or around your vivs it will kill the Hypoaspis mites as soon as you put them in. Some of these sprays can have a risidual effect that lasts three or four months.
