Gaeolaelaps Gillespie

Latin name:


Gaeolaelaps gillespiei




An excellent soil predator. In side by side comparisons it is about 50% more effective at Fungus Gnat suppression than Hypoaspis miles. Like Hypoaspis, it is an excellent Thrip control, feeding on all types of soil pupating Thrips, such as the Western Flower Thrip.

This mite tends to be more surface oriented than H. miles and has proven to be better suited for coco fibre mats and rock wool.
