The tan ones in the last picture look like amblyseius or some other type of predatory mite. They feed on smaller mites and other creatures which may seek to infest your plants, so I've always welcomed them.
Well that is good to know. my fig tree was the first to have them and neam oil seems to have no affect on themSo good to know.
oh man... i love that purple globular type. please make cultures... would love to trade for some.
i used to have a lot of these
i lost them when i had to bombard the setup with insecticides against scale/mites. but.... the other day i saw this guy. He's back... I love these spotted guys... so cute. i am hoping there are more around....and they multiply before eventually finding their way inside the pitchers. lol

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!
