Longipes (Lonj-ip-eez) is one of the rarest predatory mites species in the world, Biotactics is the only commercial producer. They replace Persimilis in the flowering stage as they can live and reproduce in the lowest humidity desired. Native to South Africa, they are some of the heartiest predators available. They are a Type I predator which means they only feed on webbing spider mites, but they do so with vigor. Longipes are perfect for high elevation growing as well as dry desert areas.
