Green Methods
Now available from United States producer Beneficial Insectary, is Stratiolaelaps scimitus (formerly Hypoaspis miles), a soil-dwelling mite capable of the prevention, control and management of various thrips and soil pests. Not only are these mites predators of thrips’ pre-pupal and pupal stages, they’re very effective in controlling fungus gnat larvae, Spring Tails, Strawberry Root Weevil and Cactus Root Weevil. They’ve been used successfully in bedding and potted plant production, seedling and cutting propagation, and poinsettia stock.

Van Belle Nursery

The new FloGo Shipping System from Van Belle Nursery saves labor while potting, reduces freight costs and eliminates waste. Van Belle takes the pots off so growers don’t have to when potting them up into a finished container size, and then sterilizes and re-uses them, eliminating waste. Boxes are 100% recyclable double-walled cardboard. And with our classic-style boxes, Van Belle uses a custom 48-in. x 48-in. pallet-size to maximize space on a truck.
