Feltiella acarisuga is a tiny gall-midge that feeds on two-spotted spider mites and various other species of spider mites. Feltiella are used when spider mite infestations are severe; they may be used with appropriate Predator Mites for the most effective control.

Feltiella acarisuga are most often used in tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, other greenhouse crops and field strawberry crops.  Feltiella works best for plants which have hairy stems such as tomatoes, hops, and hemp.  Of particular interest to greenhouse growers is that they have been shown to work quite effectively in situations where other mite predators have been ineffective by themselves.
