Life table and predation of the predatory mite Neoseiulus longispinosus (Evans) on the red spider mite (RSM), Oligonychus coffeae (Nietner), a major pest of tea in India, were studied in the…
Bioefficacy of certain plant extracts against the red spider mite, Oligonychus coffeae (Nietner) (Acarina: Tetranychidae) infesting tea in Tamil Nadu, India
The results revealed that, Derrimax and NKAE could inflict more than 90% mortality on RSM compared to PKAE and GAE, however, all the adult mites were killed within 96 hrs after treatment by all the tested botanicals, except NKAE.
Potential of Plants for Protecting Stored Pulses from Callosobruchus maculatus (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) Infestation
Aqueous extract from leaves of Melia azadirachta, Hyptis suaveolens and tubers of Cyperus rotundus effectively protected post harvest stored pulses without any infestation for up to 6 months.
Use of plant extracts for tea pest management in India
There is an increasing need of regulatory authority and national norms in India to facilitate the simplified and trade friendly registration procedures with quality assurance of the products, and the application of plant extracts with insecticidal properties provides an alternative to the synthetic pesticides.
Functional and Numerical Responses of the Predatory Mite, Neoseiulus longispinosus, to the Red Spider Mite, Oligonychus Coffeae, Infesting Tea
Functional and numerical responses of the predatory mite Neoseiulus longispinosus (Evans) to the red spider mite, Oligonychus coffeae Nietner (Acari: Tetranychidae), infesting tea were determined in a laboratory on leaf discs.
Enhancement of the reproductive potential of Mallada boninensis Okamoto (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae), a predator of red spider mite infesting tea: An evaluation of artificial diets
Results revealed that the egg yolk-based diet is the best of the three diet combinations tested in view of high fecundity and survival rate of M. boninensis.

All tested plant extracts showed varying levels of effect on red spider mite compared with the untreated control, and among them, the aqueous extracts of M. tinctoria and P. glabra had maximum ovicidal action, ovipositional deterrence and 100% adult mortality.
Sources of semiochemicals mediating host finding in Callosobruchus chinensis (Coleoptera: Bruchidae).
It is postulated that behavioural differences of the female weevils are largely due to insect-derived semiochemicals that could be used as part of an integrated pest management strategy.
Pseudomonas fluorescens as an efficient entomopathogen against Oligonychus coffeae Nietner (Acari: Tetranychidae) infesting tea
The biocontrol efficacy of the bacterium, Pseudomonas fluorescens was evaluated against the red spider mite (RSM), Oligonychus coffeae in the laboratory to test the efficacy of bacterium against adult mites.
Evaluation of Culture Media for Biomass Production of Trichoderma viride (KBN 24) and their Production Economics
Results indicated that the locally available food grains like rice and wheat were comparatively cheaper and serve as convenient substrates for the mass multiplication of Trichoderma viride and their cost economics were also discussed.
