Neoseiulus cucumeris is widely used for the biological control of thrips. The nymphs and adults actively search for food. When cucumeris finds its prey, it pierces it with its mouthparts and sucks out the contents. The mites can reproduce while feeding on prey and non-prey food sources. This allows them to build up populations before the pests are present.
