Amblyseius fallacis feeds on a number of mites including spider mites, rust mites and broad mites as well other small arthropods and pollen. They can survive for a given time on pollen alone making them an excellent preventative measure. Adults are roughly 0.5mm long and have pear shaped bodies, tan to light orange in color, shiny and have long legs. Immature fallacies are a semi transparent cream color.  At 70 degrees the time from egg to adult is 7 to 9 days, at 85 degrees the time is only 3 days. Adult females have a lifespan of 14 to 62 days and lay between 1 to 5 eggs per day. The eggs are oval and 0.3mm long, about twice the size of a two spotted mite egg. Fallacis need 50% humidity or higher and temperatures between 48 and 85 degrees. 

Fallacis are shipped as adults mixed with corn grit.

It is important to note that the bean leaves will have a few two spotted mites as food supply during transit.This will not add to the pest problem because the predators will quickly eliminate them, this food enables fallacis to become established and start reproducing immediately to give quicker results. Fallacis is most effective when released at the first sign of infestation. When spider mites become scarce fallacis migrate to the top of the plant and disperse throughout the crop with the wind.
