March 16, 2021  By Greenhouse Canada

Bioline Agrosciences is introducing STARSKii, an Amblyseius swirskii product optimized for control of thrips and whitefly in multiple crops and conditions.

According to the press release, “STARSKii takes all the attributes of Amblyseius swirskii, a highly adaptable mite with a proven ability to cope with changes in the crop, pest and environment together with an innovative new release system under CART (Climate Adapted Release Technology) technology to meet the needs of both farmers and beneficial insects.”

First releasing the innovative Controlled Release System sachet in 1991, the new sachet in STARSKii combines pre-conditioning of the contents, permeability of the sachet and a carefully balanced formulation to produce ideal conditions for mite development and subsequent control of thrips and whitefly.


Bioline Agrosciences is recognized for being a world specialist in applied biocontrol technologies with an R&D department working for more than 40 years in the field of biocontrol releases for crop protection.

“We work hand to hand with technical, production and R&D teams to continuously improve and adapt to growers needs with an environmentally friendly approach; CART technology has boosted performance in the field, bringing high fecundity from the first day of release to give an increased effectiveness against whitefly and thrips,” says Reid.
