 These gorgeous yellow springtails thrive in a moist, humid environment and is a great addition to any Bioactive enclosure due to their ability to thrive in a range of temperatures. The "Albino", or yellow color, are a morph that was isolated of the Ceratophysella Sp.

The Ceratophysella Sp. are a quick reproducing species and do very well on a calcium-clay substrate or in soil.

Application Instructions

Application Recommendation:
Ideally, rove beetles are introducted before fungus gnat and pest
populations become established or are in low numbers to allow them time
to establish population numbers for effective prevention. Rove beetles
will still establish even if their is an established pest, it just may
take extra time and a higher application rate of rove beetles.

 

Application Instructions:

For best results, clear a little hole through any mulch in the
release spot. Our rove beetles come packaged in an organic
vermiculite/coco coir blend along with a small amount of organic seed
blended for food. We package them this way so they are able to sustain
during shipping and also so all gardeners, organic or non, can simply
dump the contents of the package into their container or greenhouse.
When distributing in different spots from the same insect container,
gently agitate the container to bring beetles up to the top. Tip
container slowly while tapping and allow beetles to fall out. If needed
you can use your finger to push them, they will not bite. Repeat in each
location as necessary. You can also use a vertical walled plastic cup
to dump each group into for counting prior to release.

After releasing, hold on watering for at least 24 hours to allow them to establish without any disruption.

Rove beetles are regenerative, thus they will not need to be
reintroduced again through the life of your soil. If you are using
No-Till, this means one application per container. Period. If you are
using coco, rockwool or any other disposable growing media,
re-application is necessary for each grow cylce.
