Sandfly control and treatment is possible with the use of our predator mites. We’ve been breeding premium predator mites such as BanItch for nearly 6 years. Our robust specimens can withstand a wide range of environmental conditions and are a natural and effective sandfly control and treatment method.
There’s no doubt that sandflies can create quite an uncomfortable outdoor experience. In fact, socialising outdoors on your own property can become impossible. Infested with biting sandflies and midges, people are often forced indoors, or to use excessive amounts of insecticide.
The use of hypoaspis to treat sandflies or biting midges in lawned and gardened areas around dwellings or entertaining areas has proven to be simple and effective. It’s a great way to significantly lower, and in some cases, almost eradicate, this nuisance biting insect.
We breed our predator mites to be tough and resilient. As such, our breeding program incorporates environmental stresses to ensure every batch is ready for the toughest conditions. Simply release the predators at the right time, and in the right amount, and let them do what they do best. It can take a little more time than dousing the area with pesticides but they work cleanly and efficiently, selectively ridding you of the target pests. Rest assured, we’re happy to advise you on how and when to achieve the best sandfly control results.
BanItch is the use of soil dwelling predatory mites that are used to treat the eggs and larval stages of biting midges or sandflies. It is a property management tool that helps in significantly reducing the number of these nuisance biting pests in your gardens and lawns.
