Stratiolaelaps scimitus are predatory mites that attack larvae and pupae of fungus gnats, springtails, and thrips. These mites can be applied as a preventative, they can survive weeks without food, or release them as soon as the first fungus gnats appear.
Price includes delivery via FedEx Overnight to a street address only (no Post Office box). Insects are sent out on Wednesdays only. Place your order the Wednesday before desired shipping date. You could also request delayed delivery in the Order-Specific Comments box.
These creatures will die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather. We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem. Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If FedEx is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.
