Amblyseius (=Neoseiulus) cucumeris, the thrips predatory mite, are useful for the prevention, control, and management of various thrips species. Like most of the Amblyseius spp., A. cucumeris are tough, flexible predators. These happen to prefer thrips, mostly the immature thrips stages. A. cucumeris are shipped as adults, immatures and eggs (the latter are not part of the guaranteed count) in a bran-flake/vermiculite carrier along with a food source, the mold mite (Tyrophagus putrescentiae). This mold mite is merely a sustainable food source for the predatory mites while they're in transit.
