Stratiolaelaps scimitus
Hypoaspis nymphs, larvae, and adults feed on soil-dwelling pests. Each mite can eat up to 5-8 prey per day. Females lay their eggs in the soil. They can survive on algae and plant debris in the absence of prey. Hypoaspis contributes to reducing the number of thrips by preying on their pupae in the soil. They can survive for long periods of time without food (up to 7 weeks).
